Bethia by Daniel Elms
Small ensemble, including the carillon bells of Hull Minster, a male choir - Southbank Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hall
Program Info: The city of Hull lives and breathes in this cocktail of maritime shanties, work songs, hymns, bells and collage film.
Daniel Elms' Bethia was written for PRS Foundation's New Music Biennial 2017 and commissioned by the British Film Institute.
It features a small ensemble, including the carillon bells of Hull Minster, a male choir and a kaleidoscopic collage of film created by video artist David Briggs.
The work, created as part of Hull City of Culture 2017, is a celebration of Elms’ hometown: Hull.
The text, sung by a four-part male choir, is a collage of maritime shanties, work songs and hymns, which are mirrored by the collage of film footage created by David Briggs.
The work features trumpet, carillon bells, synthesiser, piano, choir, field recordings, and projected film footage.
