WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

BBC Proms Chamber Music

Nicholas Kok conducts the UK premiere of Sir Harrison Birtwistle's The Moth Requiem for women's voices, alto flute and three harps, a dream-like incantation of the names of the dustier cousins of the sun-loving butterfly. Pre-Reformation motets preserved in the Eton Choirbook thread through the BBC Singers' alluring programme of works by Gustav Holst and his daughter Imogen, including the third set of Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda for female voices and harp, as a prelude to tonight's performance of Indra. There will be no interval. Finish time: approx. 14:00
