Britten Noye’s Fludde 50’
Johnny Coppin / Ian Higginson / Philip Lane / Matthew Martin Gloucestershire songs* (premiere)

Britten created Noye’s Fludde – regarded by many as still the most inspired and most inspiring piece of music for young people – simply because he passionately believed in bringing children and adults, amateurs and professionals together for community music-making. And he was good at it – at writing satisfying roles for highly trained professional soloists alongside parts for recorder ensembles, handbell ringers and beginner violinists. Making Noye’s Fludde doable for everyone, but at the same time something of substance and sophistication, was just one aspect of Britten’s genius.

This special Cheltenham Music Festival production will bring together over 200 local schoolchildren – singing, acting, playing, making costumes. Gloucestershire Youth Players’ founder Edward Derbyshire will direct, and the set and costumes will be designed by children’s author and illustrator James Mayhew.

Thes bordes heare now I pynne together
To beare us saffe from the weither
That we maye rowe both heither and theither
And saffe be from the fludde
