The Music Makers

I was glad

Psalm 150

Plus a selection of English choral works for children performed by pupils of William Gilbert Primary School.

Join them at The Roundhouse for a celebration of English music to complete this celebratory season including the newly commissioned Thy flight be fleet: Trainsongs! written for SATB choir with a children’s chorus and orchestral accompaniment. The work combines conventional musical styles with more contemporary techniques such as spoken effects, orchestral glissandi and an array of percussion instruments. A variety of texts about rail travel are used from Robert Louis Stevenson, James Joyce, Emily Dickenson, James Thompson and Edna St Vincent Millay.
