Opus Angelicanum: In Concert
Sat 22 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Including the music of Vaughan Williams, Ivor Gurney and Edward Elgar - the stunning sound of Opus Anglicanum's unnaccompanied voices present a retelling of Hilaire Belloc's The Four Men, in which 'Grizzlebeard', 'the Poet', 'the Sailor' and 'Myself', walk across the Weald of Sussex in the October of 1902 from Robertsbridge to Harting, with lively conversation, debate and songs along the way.
BBC Radio 4's Zeb Soanes narrates the story in the words of Belloc; the five singers perform music and include a number of Belloc’s songs sung to his own tunes.
As Belloc's The West Sussex Drinking Song helpfully tells us:
"They sell good Beer at Haslemere
And under Guildford Hill..."
