Corvus Consort showcase concert

Ensemble-in-Residence the Corvus Consort performs a wide range of music spanning five centuries.

The programme includes ‘Stone Universe’, a brand-new commission by WAF’s Composer-in-Residence Harry Baker, setting a poem by prolofic Dartmoor poet John Powls, whose subject is the abundant granite rock that so strongly characterises Dartmoor’s landscape.
