Elements by Kantos

Kantos Chamber Choir

Sunday 5th November, 2.30pm & 5pm

Manchester Craft and Design Centre


Earth, Air, Water, Fire; all life is here.

We sing songs for our weary world, we lament the destruction of our planet and look for hope with music about the beauty of the earth.

Join Kantos for a programme packed with poetry, prose and choral forces of nature, including Katerina Gimon’s Elements, Eric Whitacre’s Water Night and Herbert Howells’ Take Him, Earth, for Cherishing.

This is the planet on which we live; the world. It is everything that we are.
