The festival presents a significant new commission from one of Britain’s leading choral composers, Gabriel Jackson, renowned for his immediacy and delicacy of expression. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of poetry, philosophy, art and life, The World Imagined is an ecstatic contemplation of creation and humankind’s small place in an infinite cosmos. Opening with John Adams’ exhilarating Short Ride in a Fast Machine, the first half includes the UK premiere of The Pleiades which explores the myths created to make sense of the stars.

Gabriel Jackson’s The World Imagined supported by the Three Choirs Festival Commissioning Circle
