Description

Full Fathom Five: Songs of the Sea


Join Hesperos on a moonlit voyage through the choral music of the sea. Leave solid ground behind and embark with us on a guided meditation of music and readings from across seven centuries. From the glassy surface to the blue depths, hear story and song blended in a varied programme, featuring Cecilia McDowall's beautiful Shipping Forecast, settings of De Profundis by Thomas Tallis and Orlando de Lassus and a moving contemporary work by Chris Hutchings, The Beach.
