Enfield Schools Music Festival, Wednesday 6th March 2019, Millfield Theatre

We will be proudly performing  two songs from ‘London Town’, a song cycle written for the choir by Dr. John Rutter CBE (with words by Delphine Chalmers):

The Bells of London  & Mind the Gap

The Bells of London, tells the story of many different kinds of bells which chime for weddings, funerals, alarms, and to welcome a New Year.  It includes the latin tag ‘Vivos voco, mortuos, plango’, which means ‘We wake the living and mourn the dead’.

Mind the Gap takes us through a journey of a number of stations on the London Underground to Southwark to see the Globe Theatre, to London Bridge to witness the Fire of London, to Baker Street to see Sherlock Holmes, Westminster to the Houses of Parliament, and Kings Cross to meet Harry Potter!
