Calling All Singers – Songs Of The Light!

Calling All Choirs & Singers!

In December 2018, The Light will be travelling to Salisbury Cathedral.

We’ll be launching the globe with 2 immersive performances of Songs Of The Light – a journey through the cathedral to go in search of The Light.

To make the event as spectacular and inclusive as possible we’re inviting local choirs and singers to join artist Richard McLester for the performance.

The Project

The Light is a giant illuminated globe that will hang in the North Transept of Salisbury Cathedral between the end of November 2018 until approximately January 2019.

For Salisbury the installation will depict the Star Of Bethlehem, focusing on the themes of Journeys, Darkness to Light and Mental Health in the overarching context of Memories.

To see a short introduction to the project, watch the Youtube video below…

The Music

Songs Of The Light has been written especially to help explore the themes of the installation in more detail. The globe forms an integral part of the performance as both artist, audience and choirs journey to go in search of The Light.

Written to be as accessible as possible, some of the music such as “Stars (Lead Me On)“, “A Chance We’ve Got To Take” & “Guide Me Home” takes the form of contemporary pop songs perfect for community choirs. Singers can choose to sing either the melody, or a harmony part which might be more suitable for their vocal range.

Pieces such as “Kyrie” and “Lux Aeterna” have been written to provide more challenging choral pieces for four part harmony choirs. “Escape From The Flood” forms the finale aimed at providing an uplifting end to the event.

The score is available as either a full score, or as a condensed version.
