Ireland A London Overture 13’
Beethoven Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage 8’
Vaughan Williams Songs of Travel 23’
Walton Belshazzar’s Feast 36’

We close the festival with Walton’s raucous and richly harmonic cantata. Often proclaimed to be one of his best works, the flamboyantly cacophonous piece tells the story of the downfall of Babylon. Three impassioned works, all firmly rooted in this year’s theme of travel, create a more reflective first half.
