The History Express by Russell Hepplewhite

14 December 2021

The Jubilee Opera Chorus goes on a journey via ten songs through the history of the world.

‘The History Express’ by Russell Hepplewhite steams rapidly on its journey through time, setting off with ‘The Invention of the Internet’ and ending its travels with ‘The Big Bang’. Along the way, the traveller alights at various momentous moments in history.

This song cycle, for upper voice, piano and percussion was commissioned by Jubilee Opera in 2019 .
