Ancient Journeys

In today’s pro­gramme, we’ll be tak­ing a musi­cal jour­ney through ancient worlds, from Greece, Rome and Atlantis, to the Amer­i­c­as, the South Pacif­ic, Antar­ti­ca – and even the Moon. Plus a vis­it to the ancient lands of the Cathars in the Pays d’Oc, in south­ern France.

In this pro­gramme, we will be fea­tur­ing the music of Chris­t­ian Sales and Groupe Oc, who play music that mix­es ancient and mod­ern at Son et Lumiere events in the Pays d’Oc, the Cathar coun­try around Car­cas­sonne in south­ern France. Learn more about Group d’Oc here.

We will also touch the shores of Atlantis with Earth and Fire, Antar­ti­ca with Vaugh­an Williams, ancient South Amer­i­ca with Cus­co, the South Pacif­ic with Jalan Jalan, and the Sev­en Won­ders of the Ancient World with Stu­art Mitchell. We’ll even vis­it the Moon with both Lau­rie John­son and Mannheim Steam­roller, and dis­cov­er ancient peo­ples with Hans Zim­mer. And, of course, a great deal more. The music is large­ly, but not exclu­sive­ly, instru­men­tal, with con­ven­tion­al and elec­tron­ic instru­men­ta­tion. We do hope you enjoy the jour­ney.
