Salisbury Festival 2011

Where Two Worlds Touch: Saturday 21 May 2011, Salisbury Cathedral

For Salisbury Festival 2011, Howard Moody and Helen Chadwick were commissioned to write Where Two Worlds Touch - a celebration of two worlds through poetry, story and song - the meeting of the East and West, of Christian and Muslim. It featured La Folia Brass percussion, four soloists and over 200 voices made up of Salisbury Festival Chorus and Salisbury Community Choir. Words were from poets including Rumi, Hafiz, Hildegard of Bingen, and Lalla.

The two performances, each ending with a standing ovation, received **** reviews in Guardian, Telegraph and Financial Times.
