The Angry Planet

This monumental cantata for massed forces was commissioned by David Hill and The Bach Choir and premiered as part of the 2012 BBC Proms. Setting a specially commissioned text by Charles Bennett, Chilcott skilfully uses both metred and unmetered sung and spoken lines to highlight the text's environmental message. While the musically interlinked choirs sing of humanity's negligence towards nature in a series of dream images, the endearing and innocent tunes of the children's choir ultimately evoke a sense of hope for the future. Creating a unique opportunity for adult and children's choirs to collaborate, this captivating piece offers a fun and educational performance experience for singers both young and old.

Flame

Flame's central theme is one of light and happiness being passed from one person to another. Bardsley's lyrics are inspired by a quotation from Siddharta Gautama Buddha, suggesting the notion that a candle's light shared is thereby strengthened rather than diminished. The poem's spiritual quality is captured perfectly in Parry's music, which starts with a single flickering melody, passed from upper to lower voices, and exploding into 12-part harmony as the flame is multiplied, culminating in the affirming final line "so to light the world".
