‘Voices soar to the music of Thomas Tallis and Orlando Gibbons as bodies fall, tumbling down rippling silks and hurtling down ropes at reckless speeds’ The Guardian
Yaron Lifschitz director
Robert Hollingworth music director
Fusing Circa’s exhilarating brand of contemporary circus with the exquisite sound of I Fagiolini’s singing, How Like An Angel celebrates the beauty of Hove’s All Saints Church.
Join performers and singers on a journey of discovery around this sacred space. Intensely beautiful music and feats of astonishing acrobatics draw you deep into a world of physical daring and soaring sound, against a backdrop of stunning architecture.
The spellbinding programme of music includes Thomas Tallis’ Gaude gloriosa, Hildegard of Bingen’s O Viridissima Virgo and Missa L’homme arme (Agnus dei) by Josquin des Prez.
How Like An Angel has tipped audiences from the theatrical to the spiritual and back again in a succession of cathedrals throughout England.
