Sofi Jeannin conductor
Culture Shock (AKA James Pountney) electronics

Contemplate the endurance and joy of a historic pilgrimage route and experience a brand new collaboration between Joanna Marsh and electronics artist James Pountney, with Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin.

Nearly four years in the making, Joby Talbot's Path of Miracles is fast becoming a twenty-first century choral classic. Inspired by the indelible impression left on the composer by the sights of the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain, the work is a choral dramatization of the famous pilgrimage route, setting poetry and religious texts in seven languages. Talbot's tightly bound voices journey through physical hardship, mental endurance and spiritual resolve, finally arriving at a point of jubilance as the pilgrims glimpse the end of their path.

The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin then invite you to experience for the first time a collaboration between composer Joanna Marsh and James Pountney (AKA Culture Shock) - a groundbreaking electronics artist whose past collaborations include the likes of EDM royalty Sub Focus and NERO.
