Rivers have always inspired artists, poets and composers. Enjoy City Chorus performing beautiful music on a riparian theme, from classical works to show tunes, jazz standards to folk songs, spirituals to new compositions. Guest soloists join this London-based choir, performing favourites like Moon River, The Water of Tyne, The Volga Boat Song, and Cry Me a River. The programme reaches back to Palestrina (Super Flumina Babylonis) and Handel (De torrente in via), and forward to new arrangements by conductor Paul Ayres. Accompanist Philip Shannon puts the icing on the cake with the dazzling solo Jeux d'eau by Maurice Ravel.
