London chamber choir Canticum take us on a musical tour, ranging from traditional English folksong arrangements (inc Hywel Davies - world premiere), to exotic sounds such as a Mongolian shepherd's song, Nigerian and Sotho songs, and "Small Sky" by the Japanese composer Takemitsu. Sibelius' Finlandia Hymn, the Neapolitan song Santa Lucia and Grainger's setting of "Danny Boy" are familiar tunes to all and we return via South America with Berger's Brazilian Psalm. Finally we visit New York with Orlando Gough's "Tall Stories" about immigrants building skyscrapers.
