Captain Noah’s coming to Wells!

Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo, Saturday 4 May at 1.05pm
in the North Transept of Wells Cathedral

Admission is FREE (with a retiring collection for the Chorister Trust)

We all know how beautifully the choristers sing for the daily services but here’s a chance to hear them singing something quite different in quite a different style! Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo was written and composed towards the end of 1970, the first collaboration between librettist Michael Flanders and composer Joseph Horovitz. The work is a lighthearted oratorio on the Noah story as you’ve probably never heard it before. The musical style of the work is unashamedly eclectic and exploits all well-known types of popular music, giving our choristers a chance to show you truly how versatile they are! This short concert is free with a retiring collection in aid of the Wells Cathedral Chorister Trust.
