Time & Tide
Saturday October 7th
Great Hall, Brunel Museum
Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir visits the spectacular Grand Entrance Hall at the Brunel Museum for this intriguing evening of choral music and readings.
Time & Tide will feature as its centrepiece a new version of Elgar’s majestic Sea Pictures, arranged for choir and piano by Donald Fraser. An eclectic programme also includes works by Thomas Weelkes, Hassler, Vaughan Williams and Purcell, as well as some popular surprises.
Poems and readings on a nautical and temporal theme – read by actors Lizzie Roper and Rufus Gerrard-Wright – will combine with choral works and spectacular projections, in what promises to be a multi-media feast of words, music and imagery.
Now open again for the first time in 150 years, the Brunel Museum’s Grand Entrance Hall has undergone extensive refurbishment and now serves as a unique performance space with a magnificent acoustic. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience words and music in a distinctive and historic Rotherhithe village setting, just a stone’s throw from the famous Mayflower pub, the oldest tavern on the river Thames.
