Sense of Sound Singers is to be the featured choral ensemble in Paco Peña’s 4 date UK tour of Requiem For TheEarth. Performing at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral on Thursday October 9th and Manchester Bridgewater Hall on Tuesday 14th October the choir will be conducted by Musical Director, Perri Alleyne-Hughes.
Paco Peña is one of the leading champions of the Flamenco tradition and his shows always combine brilliantly music, drama and dance to push at the boundaries of this ancient musical form.
This Requiem featuring guitarists, percussionists, a flamenco dancer and Sense of Sound Singers is an epic lament for our planet which fuses the heat and fire of flamenco with the passionate incantations of a Southern Spanish requiem mass.
Requiem for the Earth is a powerful reminder that our existence on earth is transitory. Experiencing this performance, with its driving flamenco rhythms, dark harmonies and soulful vocals combining beautifully with the expressive choral music, in the sanctity of The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King will be a thrilling and moving evening and a once in a lifetime opportunity.
“Peña is a virtuoso, capable of dazzling an audience beyond the frets of mortal man. He combines rapid-fire flourishes with a colourist’s sense of shading; this listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with a more assured mastery of his instrument.”
