Lynne Plowman The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Alexander Campkin ‘by still waters’

Sally Beamish Sea Psalm

 

Opus Anglicanum (five male unaccompanied singers and BBC Radio’s Zeb Soanes narrating) perform sequences of song and spoken word created especially for the ensemble. Plowman’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner places 12 brilliant miniatures amidst Coleridge’s 1798 ballad, while Beamish’s Sea Psalm marks the sinking of HMS Duchess in 1939, setting Psalm 107  ‘They that go down to the sea in ships’ against a retelling of the event through an eyewitness account.
