Morning, Noon, and Night takes you on a musical journey through the day, under Luke Jerram’s breathtaking Gaia artwork – a replica of Earth, seven metres in diameter and populated with images from NASA - in Southwark Cathedral

Thursday 20 October

6.30pm

Tickets £1.00 - £25.00 from City of London Sinfonia

We wake up under the early-morning sky of the Sonoran Desert with Luther Adams’ ‘Sky with Endless Stars’ before the soft strings of Haydn’s Le Matin ring in the morning with relentless cheerfulness. Our day is filled with space for quiet reflection while we enjoy Messiaen’s 'Interstellar Call', Finnis’ ethereal The Centre is Everywhere and Bach’s hauntingly beautiful Prelude to his Cello Suite No.1. After spending a lazy afternoon in the company of Debussy and a langorous faun, our day comes to a close with Britten’s song cycle Nocturne.

Fasten your seatbelts, pull up one of our comfy cushions and join us on a journey through both time and space that will fill you with wonder and inspire you to reflect on the beauty of our planet.
