The Sirens' Voice: Magnificent Women

The Sirens' Voice
The third of the London Oriana Choir and conductor Dominic Peckham's five15 concerts takes place at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich on Thursday 21 June 2018. Entitled The Sirens' Voice: Magnificent Women, the concert continues the five15's exploration of music by women composers with a programme spanning the centuries from the 11th to the 21st, starting with an arrangement of a Hildegard von Bingen plainsong by Felicia Sandler to Vespertilians by the American composer Jocelyn Hagen, and the award-winning The Angel by the young Swedish composer Tina Andersson. British composers include Imogen Holst, Kerry Andrew and Sally Beamish.

The name of the choir's third five15 composer-in-residence will also be announced at the concert. The 2017/18 holder of this role Rebecca Dale, has just been signed to Decca Publishing and Decca Classics, the first woman to achieve this distinction.
