Inspired by the events of the Kristallnacht, Tippett's secular oratorio A Child of Our Time is brought to life by a stellar cast of young soloists and the combined forces of Woking Choral Society and outstanding chamber choir Vox Cordis. OSP's leader Francesca Barritt is the soloist in music from the 1993 Steven Spielberg film Schindler's List, and the evening opens with Ben Palmer's exciting new choral work, a setting of Czeslaw Milosz's poem Campo dei Fiori, which juxtaposes the burning of Giordano Bruno in Rome in 1600 and the poet's experience of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943.
