Robert Hollingworth, director

This earth

Stephen Wilkinson: Dover Beach
Thomas Simaku: La leggiadra luna (first performance)
Sheppard: Media vita
Leighton: God's Grandeur
Kile Smith: The Consolation of Apollo (UK premiere)
Owen Russell: The Sixth Sphere (Jupiter)


NASA's Apollo 8 mission was launched 50 years ago, in December 1968. The pilot William Anders said that despite all the training and preparation for an exploration of the moon, the astronauts ended up discovering Earth. This programme does both and includes the first UK performance of a work for voices and percussion based on the astronauts' famous Christmas broadcast from space (together with projected images from the mission) as well as John Sheppard's phenomenal setting from the funeral service written during the 1550s, bringing to an end The 24's three-year exploration of English music from that time. The 24 are delighted to give the world premiere of Thomas Simaku's 'La leggiadra luna' in the composer's 60th birthday year. The programme also includes a third premiere: a piece by undergraduate Owen Russell, recipient of the first STR Music Composition Prize.
