Chorus: The voice is the most intimate instrument of sound production. Opened up, the voice can orate ponderous, thunderous discourse. The proximal whisper - vulnerable and fragile - releases wonderful, terrible secrets. The bittersweet stories of former members of a now-abandoned monastery in Gorton, Manchester reveal what happened to their community as the 20th century came to an end. Chorus is sculpted entirely from their voices, from pigeons and distant traffic. Listen to the voices sing and dance their testimonies, those voices of choristers whose way of life is now lost.

Fast Forward excerpt - Camerata Ensemble
