An Offering of Songs
A celebration of Tagore through European choral music
Sunday 1st May 2011
3.30pm Dartington Hall, Devon
Ishirini is delighted to be performing as part of the Tagore Festival, hosted by the Resurgence Trust and the Dartingon Hall Trust.
Our Offering of Songs, performed on our tour in April to Kolkata and Kalimpong, consists of words and music inspired by Tagore and his work. Tagore’s web of influences is such that we will be singing some of the most sublime choral music of the European tradition, with pieces by Finzi, Schumann, Macmillan and Skempton.
