Crashing gongs, ringing tubular bells and explosive brass together with birdsong heralds one of Messiaen’s most monumental works, commissioned to commemorate the dead of two World Wars. Programme also includes Tippett’s powerful message of hope and optimism against war and oppression: his ‘oratorio of contemplation’, 'A Child of Our Time'.

Olivier Messiaen : Et Exspecto Resurrectionem Mortuorum
Michael Tippett : A Child of Our Time
