The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra with Harelquin Chamber Choir present music inspired by the South Downs, including the world premiere of On Windover Hill by Nathan James. This new cantata explores the story behind the Long Man of Wilmington, the oldest and largest representation of the human form in Europe. Supported by Arts Council England and the RVW Trust, On Windover Hill uses a variety of Roman, early English, early twentieth-century, and contemporary texts to narrate what the mystical hill-figure might represent.

The concert will also feature rarieties from Ruth Gipps (Goblin Market) and Avril Coleridge-Taylor (Wyndore), both of whom were proud of their Sussex roots. Wyndore was written in 1936, inspired by a poem by Aldous Huxley and this will be its first performance in 67 years. Gipps's groundbreaking setting of Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market from 1954 is performed with kind permission of her family.
