Three Choirs Festival

I have been commissioned by the Three Choirs Festival and the Elgin Master Chorale to write a 45-minute piece for tenor, chorus and orchestra. The texts for this multi-movement piece are by Ha-Nagid, Leopardi, Doris Kareva, Walt Whitman, Kenneth White, St Ambrose and Wallace Stevens. The first performance will be given by Nick Pritchard, the Three Choirs Festival Chorus and the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by David Hill in Worcester Cathedral on 31 July 2020, with the US premiere in November 2021.
