Liz Lane New ‘What the Lark Saw’ Three Choirs Festival RVW150 Commission

Great news that Liz Lane is one of the composers supported by the RVW Trust commissions for their RVW150 – the celebration of Ralph Williams 150 years after his birth.

Liz’s work is part of What the Lark Saw, a new community led creative programme which will bring together Gloucestershire communities to tell their stories.

What the Lark Saw brings together different strands of RVW’s work, seeding musical ideas from The Lark Ascending and folk song and inspiration from Wordsworth’s description of the lark as a ‘pilgrim of the sky’. With the notion of pilgrimage so innately connected to the cathedrals that host the festival each year, the project will travel out into communities, making use of the Three Choirs Way long distance walking path and the waterways that connect the three cathedral cities, to collect stories and ‘modern day folk tales’ which will be used as the source of creative responses in a wide variety of mediums (working with a collective of local artists, writers and performers). Bringing together these responses will be a central song cycle/cantata ‘picture frame’ which will be created by Gloucestershire-based composer Liz Lane.

This project will run in conjunction with the Three Choirs Festival programme in 2023.
