Andromeda – a choral work

Cyril Rootham. English composer. Fellow of St John’s College Cambridge. Trained at the Royal College of Music

One of the events planned for the festival is a performance of Andromeda, a choral work of 1300 bars composed in 1903 by Cyril Rootham ( 1875 -1938)   and based on CK’s poem, Andromeda.

This is a substantial choral work and local schools and choral societies will be invited to take part. It will be the first time the work has been performed in over 100 years.
One idea we have is to involve schools in following the process of bringing this  historical manuscript to life. From typesetting the score, interpretation, rehearsals, through to the final performance.
