Paul Mealor’s The Farthest Shore headlines a fantastic concert featuring choirs from Cambridge, Canterbury and Romney Marsh children, accompanied by brass and organ. Music by Mendelssohn, Parry, Barber, Copland and Stanford make up a programme also including a Festival Commission by Daniel Saleeb.

Parry’s I was glad will end the first half of this concert, and this will be the first point at which all the performers come together in one glorious barrage of sound. And this is just the beginning; in the second half we are taken on a journey through an old folktale which tells of a mystical stranger, washed up on the shores, who couldn’t speak the language. He was very different in looks and colour to the villagers, and seemed to be ‘born of the recent storm’. He is greeted initially with much hostility, but in time heals a community. Who was the stranger? Did he really cure the village children of a plague? There are no real answers; however, what is known, is that the village changed dramatically after that encounter…

This concert will be a choral spectacular, and one not to be missed by lovers of choral music or wondrous tales!
