A Massed Children's Choir Concert 'Written on Water'
Commisioned by BAMS (Bath Abbey Music Society) in celebration of the Abbey's Footprint project and presented by Bath Abbey's Schools Singing Programme
Join us for an enchanting evening of choral music sung by a massed children's choir of 350 pupils drawn from different primary schools in Bath. The children are all part of the Abbey's Schools' Singing Programme, which brings the joy of singing to thousands of school children in Bath and surrounding areas. The children will be joined by the Bristol Ensemble, with Jon Monie as the Narrator, in the first ever performance of Written on Water.
Written on Water is a song cycle which takes its inspiration from the history of Bath Abbey, beginning with the sacred spring, through Iron Age, Roman and Mediaeval Bath to the present day, commissioned by Bath Abbey Music Society in celebration of the Footprint Project.
Conducted by Greg Hallam.
Words: Sue Curtis; Music: Jools Scott.
Tickets available from Bath Box Office from 1 May.
