The Erebus Ensemble: Songs of Hope in 40 Voices
The Erebus Ensemble will round off the 2015 Bristol Proms with an experiment in surround sound choral music.
Saturday 1st August, 7:30pm
Bristol Old Vic Theatre
Thomas Tallis’ immortal Spem in Alium is the centre-piece and inspiration of this uniquely-staged concert. Under the direction of Tom Williams, The Erebus Ensemble (Handel’s Messiah, 2013, Dido & Aeneas, 2014) will embrace the acoustics of Bristol Old Vic’s auditorium to present an unforgettable, surround-sound performance.
The evening will also include premiere performances of original pieces by some of today’s most visionary composers. These compositions will be specially-written, conceived on the subject of hope and unleashed on all sides by a pure acoustic choir of 40.
With a programme including that Tallis classic and other works from the likes of Murray Gold, Richard Thomas and Josephine Stephenson, expect to be transported to another level of listening.
