Wonderful memories from a Stone Songs rehearsal

During our rehearsals of Stone Songs, a film crew from BBC South Today paid us a visit.  We have edited their 2 cameras together to give you a wonderful reminder of Howard Moody’s new choral work.

Written 800 years after the laying of the Cathedral’s foundation stone, Stone Songs is a work for soloists, chorus and orchestra, reflecting on the skill, vision and dedication that it took to build such a magnificent building, and inspired by the ancient chants that have resonated from the stones since the 13th century.

Composed and conducted by

Nazan Fikret – soprano
Helen Charlston – mezzo soprano
Nick Pritchard – tenor
Sam Poppleton – baritone
