‘Impeccable intonation, balance, charm, and perfect diction… an exceptional group’ – Henley Standard
Acclaimed vocal ensemble Echo present a stunning programme of old and new music about nature and the climate emergency. From Benjamin Britten’s beautiful setting of Five Flower Songs to ANOHNI’s call to arms, the programme takes listeners on a journey that both celebrates nature’s abundance and warns of future scarcity.
Relax into the serenity of Hildegard of Bingen’s writing, delight in the sound world of Palestrina and discover brand new music by exciting young artists. The concert features world premieres from Lillie Harris and Rory Wainwright-Johnston, the joint winning composers of Echo’s inaugural Composition Competition.
The Already Gone Tour is supported by Genesis Foundation Kickstart Fund, the Golsoncott Foundation and the RVW Trust.
