POSTPONED // GSA Choir performs ‘The Unspoken’ at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery

May 2 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

POSTPONED // GSA Choir performs The Unspoken  for #EdwinMorgan100

Sat 2 May, 1-1.30pm, Scottish National Portrait Gallery

The GSA Choir is well-known for its commitment to contemporary music, having commissioned over 15 new choral works over the last 7 years. Join the choir as it performs The Unspoken, commissioned from Scottish composer Jay Capperauld in 2017, which contains lyrics from Scotland’s former Makar (National Poet), Edwin Morgan. This performance is part of the Edwin Morgan Centenary, in partnership with the Edwin Morgan Trust. Morgan’s poem, and Jay’s epic composition, examines ‘the joyous emotion [of love], and the fact that the most vital aspects of love are inexpressible through words alone, if indeed at all’.
