Here are the sky-nails
they asked you for
so long ago
and this their purpose,
in fixing our eyes
to the heavens a moment
the heart lifts.
The Voice Project returns to fill Norwich Cathedral with the sounds of flight in this new work, co-commissioned by The Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
Accompanied by elegiacally hip saxophonist Andy Sheppard (Glossolalia) and the dazzling strings of Trio Zephyr, (The Proportions of the Temple) over 100 voices will rise and lift, loop and drift, exploring the experience of the solo avian traveller and the flock with the words of Andrew Motion, Don Paterson, Wendy Cope , David Morley, John Fuller, Katrina Porteous , George Szirtes , Martin Figura and Maura Dooley, poets who have all contributed works to this piece which explores our fascination with the vertical, the skybound, birds in flight.
Performance runs c 75 mins
Presented in association with the RSPB
