Details

Over one week in spring 2007 Neville Gabie and David Ogden spent time onsite asking site and office staff to sing a song from their home country. Contributions varied hugely in content and style, but over the course of that week more than twenty-five contributions covering several nationalities were made. Those songs formed the basis of a musical score developed by David Ogden. Many of the songs were then learnt in the different languages to be performed by the City of Bristol Choir on the building Site in the empty shell of what will be the new House of Fraser store and to an audience in St James Priory.

The Cabot Circus Cantata, was intended as a celebration of the onsite diversity. The publication is accompanied by a DVD of the songs as they were recorded on the building site.
