The Farthest Shore

November 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

A concert of high drama, bold gesture and sparkling colours: Paul Mealor shot to fame when his motet Ubi Caritas was heard by a broadcast audience of 2.5 billion people at the wedding of the The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  We perform Mealor’s brilliant musical drama The Farthest Shore – a retelling of a Celtic tale from the mystic island of Anglesey, spiritual home to the last of the Druids and the Avalon of Arthurian legend.  A mysterious child washes ashore during a fearsome storm; disease hits the village and we must decide if the child is the agent of death and destruction, or a healing angel.  Mealor fuses oratorio and opera in this brilliant work – not to be missed!  After this intensity, the concert ends with John Rutter’s effervescent Gloria.  Scored for chorus, brass ensemble and organ, it’s guaranteed to send you away with a spring in your step.
