Description

Commissioned by St Peter' School, Solihull with funds provided by the Performing Rights Society and the Britten-Pears Foundation and was first performed on 26-28 September 2008, at Friary Church, Olton by students of St Peter's School, Solihull and professional musicians. Finnissy was approached by the commissioner to write a 'sequel' to Britten's Noyes Fludde, a work mixing school forces with a small group of professional/more skilled musicians. Mankind is the result, based on the mediaeval mystery play of the same name but combining musical elements from a whole range of sources (including improvisation and non-Western European musical structures and tonalities), simultaneously providing instructive models for the teaching of GCSE and A-level music.show more
