CORP, R.: Ice Mountain (The) (New London Children's Choir and Orchestra members, Corp)
First performed in a production by Abigail Morris in March 2010 at St Michael’s Church in Hampstead, London, The Ice Mountain is a story of the cycle of life, of loss and how to come to terms with death. The cyclical passage of time through the four seasons reflects the work’s emotional journey, while the story itself is based on an old Swiss legend The Old Woman and theDead and the music incorporates elements of Swiss folk-music and liturgical chant. Composer and conductor Ronald Corp says ‘the tale is a haunting one and very poignant and I was drawn by the mystical element in the story; I think my music for the opera reflects this’.
