Description

"My soul, there is a country far beyond the stars" – the opening words of Hubert Parry's glorious Songs of Farewell introduce a truly heavenly choral journey, guided by the outstanding young voices of the National Youth Chamber Choir of Great Britain.

Traditional classics join contemporary gems, notably Lux Aurumque by superstar US composer Eric Whitacre, recorded by the National Youth Chamber Choir and Whitacre in 2010 for their Grammy Award-winning album Light and Gold, and Love Endureth by 2018 Last Night of the Proms composer Roxanna Panufnik.

Concert promoted by Rosehill Theatre as part of its Rosehill on the Road series, in association with the Rotary Club of Workington and supported by Allerdale Borough Council and Cumbria county councillors.
