“Freedom! The Power of Song” was commissioned by the Salisbury Community Choir, from Alexander L’Estrange, in collaboration with his wife Joanna, a former Swingle Singer.
This powerful new work, which comprises both original music and poems inspired by episodes of recent history, and arrangements of classic songs, celebrates the unique role of communal singing throughout history in bringing people together in solidarity at times of upheaval and struggle, and changing lives for good.
The journey begins, chronologically, with Martin Luther King’s Civil Rights movement in the US (1954-1968), with the cry of “Oh Freedom!”, followed by a medley comprising songs such as “We shall not be moved” and “We shall overcome”.
We move then to World War I (1914-1918), recalling the spontaneous singing of soldiers in the trenches with “Everyone Sang”, juxtaposed with “Abide with me”, followed by a beautiful original song “Red is the colour”.
The Movement for Equality for Women (1906 – the present day and on-going) focusses on the Suffragette Movement with a march and a song for “Twenty-first century woman”.
The non-violent Baltic Singing Revolution (1987-1991) incorporates original music “How can I keep from singing”, a “Litany” and “The Power of Song”, with national tunes from the region.
Scored for SATB chorus, massed unison children’s choir and a band, “Freedom! Sing for a change” promises to bring the whole community together in joyous and heartfelt celebration and singing.
The timing of the concert has been chosen to remember the centenary of ending of WW1 and celebrate the freedoms we enjoy.
There will be a retiring collection in support of Naomi House Children’s Hospice the chosen charity of Salisbury Community Choir.
Tickets £30, £25, £20 & £15 + £1 per ticket booking fee (capped at £5)
