Carry me home

Half an hour of uninterrupted music ranging from Schubert's famous and twinkly trout to de Falla's stern and flamenco-influenced portrayal of a Spanish corregidor (magistrate).

An eclectic mix of music ranging from Schubert's famous and twinkly song about a trout, to de Falla's stern and flamenco influenced portrayal of a Spanish corregidor, or magistrate. A Hungarian dance by Brahms, some beautiful music for strings by Sibelius and Philip Glass, and a nostalgic depiction of a water mill by Ronald Binge, sit alongside John Barry's yearning title theme from the film "Out of Africa", and a sophisticated vocal arrangement of the traditional spiritual "Swing low, sweet chariot" which eventually carries us home via a peaceful Nocturne by John Field.
