The BBC Singers

18 September 2015

Just a few days after the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain the BBC Singers make a ground-breaking visit to the Royal Air Force Museum London for a concert which marks not just that famous aerial combat, but also celebrates man’s long fascination with powered flight – from Icarus to the Space Age.

The programme includes the world premiere of Three Spitfire Motets by Edward Cowie, Eric Whitacre’s musical portrayal of the flying-machine invented by Leonardo da Vinci, and Airplane Cantata ­­Gabriel Jackson's extraordinary musical of the aeronautical age, in which the BBC Singers are accompanied by virtuoso pianola-player Rex Lawson.

The Royal Air Force Voluntary Choir have also confirmed their attendance to perform as part of the BBC Singers Concert on Friday 18th September 2015.
