The Orlando Chamber Choir Concert “Songs for the Soul”

Orlando’s summer programme looks at psalms, folk songs and spirituals settings from Great Britain and America. At the heart of this programme are the five spirituals from Michael Tippett’s oratorio A Child of our Time, which was written in the aftermath of Kristallnacht as an expression of Tippett’s pacifism and support for oppressed people throughout the world. Tippett was inspired by composers such as Tallis and Purcell, whose moving psalm settings will also be sung as part of a programme which the choir and its director Lucy Goddard hope will be a balm to the soul in troubled times.
