The Big Song

6 Feb 2017

by Heathcote Williams, narrated by Roy Hutchins

Arrangement & Musical Direction by Kirsty Martin, featuring Hullabaloo Quire, Raise the Roof Community Choir and RISE Up Singing.

The universe sings. Planets sing. Comets sing. The earth itself rings like a bell and vibrates with sound. So, instead of the Big Bang, could there have been the Big Song?

The Big Song is a glorious celebration of singing that sweeps from science to spirituality, prehistory to protest, and reminds us of the central role of song in our identity and civilisation.
