Spend a day singing Tippett’s haunting and beautiful spirituals from his pacifist oratorio A Child of our Time. Inspired by the events of Kristallnacht, Tippett used the spirituals similarly to Bach chorales, as a commentary and reflection on the action of the piece. These arrangements are entirely unique, and this day will be a wonderful way to get to know them, or to revisit these incredible works.

You’ll meet David and take part in an engaging rehearsal.​ You'll have the opportunity to meet members of Opus 48 and other musically-minded people from across Oxfordshire and find out more about Opus 48. We’ll give you details of our forthcoming season so you can join and/or support us.
