Jools Scott Written on Water (words by Sue Curtis)
An enchanting evening of choral music sung by a massed children’s choir of 350 pupils drawn from different primary schools in Bath as they give the world premiere of Jools Scott’s Written on Water, with the Bristol Ensemble and narrator Jon Monie. The children are all part of the Abbey’s Schools’ Singing Programme, which brings the joy of singing to thousands of school children in Bath and surrounding areas.
Written on Water is a song cycle which takes its inspiration from the history of Bath Abbey, beginning with the sacred spring, through Iron Age, Roman and Mediaeval Bath to the present day, commissioned by Bath Abbey Music Society in celebration of the Footprint Project.
Tickets available from Bath Box Office from 1 May.
