Music for 'Roister Doister'

Details About the Event

LSO Discovery’s contribution to this nationwide project was a performance on Friday 22 November at LSO St Luke's, which is the culmination of a creative project which brought together instrumental music devised by pupils from Prior Weston and Clerkenwell Primary Schools with performances by the LSO Youth Choir. Under the guidance of the Choir’s conductors Lucy Griffiths and David Lawrence and animateur Hannah Conway, over 150 young people from Islington, Hackney and the City of London took part. About the arrangements: LSO Soundhub Based at LSO St Luke’s, Soundhub provides a flexible space where composers can explore, collaborate and experiment, with access to vital resources, support from industry professionals and LSO players; a supportive environment for artists to try out new ideas and develop existing work. In the spirit of the project to use the songs as inspiration to create new music and continue the legacy of Benjamin Britten, the composers from LSO Soundhub were invited to create new arrangements of the accompaniments to the songs of ‘Friday Afternoons’. The arrangements performed were by: Toby Young ‘Old Abram Brown’ and ‘A New Year Carol’ Ewan Campbell ’Begone, dull care!’ Marisa Hartanto ’Cuckoo!’ and ‘The useful plough’ Michael Cryne ’Ee-Oh!’ Christopher Talbot ’Fishing song’ Aaron Holloway-Nahum ’Jazz-Man’ and ‘I mun be married on Sunday’ James Welland ’There was a man of Newington’
