A song cycle for 2000 young singers and instrumentalists
Haringey Schools Music Festival 2018
Royal Albert Hall, June 4th
This song cycle is a musical journey through the fascinating habitat of a wildflower meadow – from the deep, dark, secrets of the soil to the vibrant colours, sounds and scents of a meadow buzzing with creatures. It is a celebration of the power of the earth to sustain our wildlife, of habitats that give life to so many organisms, and of the interconnectedness of all living things.
This piece, commissioned by Haringey, will be performed by a massed choir from 52 of the borough’s primary and secondary schools alongside instrumental ensembles including the Haringey youth symphony orchestra and senior guitar ensemble.
