Plymouth Philharmonic Choir press-officer writes: ‘As the bow cuts through the waves, a frothy, fleck of foam sprays and hisses into life. The wind fills every sail as ahead lies a broad expanse of ocean with sunlight dazzling and dancing on deep blue waters. All this, together with the powerful emotions that the sea unleashes, are experienced in Vaughan Williams’s ‘A Sea Symphony’. In this major musical work, the singers’ voices combine with the orchestra, swirling and surging on a journey across a dramatic seascape.’
