    The Very Distant Days | London Concord Singers
    London Concord Singers, Malcolm Cottle
    Sint Janskerk Maastricht Maastricht 6211 LE Maastric
    United Kingdom

    Following their world premiere performance in London, London Concord Singers present the Dutch premiere of The Very Distant Days by the contemporary British composer Judith Bingham. The Very Distant Days, a London Concord Singers commission, sets a text which intriguingly combines words by Charles Dickens and Lewis Carroll. Bingham uses extracts from Dombey and Son and Alice in Wonderland to create a wonderfully meditative piece on ageing and growing old. London Concord Singers will be performing this alongside Zoltán Kodály's own take on the same subject, Oregek.

    Also in the programme is Vaughan Williams Five English Folksongs, one of the gems of the 20th century choral repertoire, plus a selection of sacred music spanning 600 years from the Spanish baroque composer Tomas Luis da Victoria to another contemporary British composer, Cecilia McDowall.
