Concert Information

The BBC Singers and their Chief Conductor, Sofi Jeannin, present the world premiere of Rachel Portman’s Earth Song. Written for 32 voices, Earth Song is a setting of a new poem by Nick Drake, which takes the form of a conversation within the human mind and body as it breaths. Alongside Portman’s work is Anders Hillborg's Endless Sky - the theme of which is light; light in both a physical and spiritual sense - to strive toward the light, and to rebel against the darkness and decay.
