The Ceaseless Round of Circling Planets 25th November

The London première will be given by Imperial College Choir and Orchestra (Director Colin Durrant) at Holy Trinity Church SW7.   Janet conducted the first performance in the final concert of the 2016 Thaxted Festival. In tribute to Gustav Holst, founder of the Festival 100 years ago, the piece combines texts about the harmony of the spheres with Orlando Gibbons’ glorious Renaissance hymn Eternal ruler of the ceaseless round of circling planets, Singing on their way. Atmospheric colour is added by overtone singing and the vibrant ethereal sound of the waterphone.
