I'm very excited and happy to say that I've been engaged to sing Sea Drift, the Delius superpiece, in a concert in December. The concert, on December 6th, will be given by the University of the West of England choir and orchestra. The concert has a theme (to tie in with Bristol's 2015 status as European Green Capital) of This Green and Pleasant Land.
Sea Drift is a setting of a poem by Walt Whitman - one of my favourite poets - which tells of two mockingbirds nesting on the seashore. An apparently odd subject, but a deeply moving poem. I'm going to record the words soon and post the result on this site.
Paying homage to Mr Puccini in his house in Lucca. 'Questo mar rosso' looks very different in the original sketch https://t.co/dIwx8JVAMA
