A wide river may part us from a lover; it may symbolise the final crossing of the dying. Water brings life to parched earth: not all cultures are blessed with plentiful tap water and some pray for Miracle of the Spring; others invoke a Cloudburst ceremony.
Our fresh and vital programme is enlivened by a number of unusual percussion effects. With music by Fauré, Whitacre, Chilcott, Palestrina, Barber, Schubert, Tippett and more.
Duration: 2 hours with interval
