A Falling Star

Aga Serugo Lugo is the composer of this Celebration 2018 Finale. He writes about the piece:

Allow “Falling star” to take you on an incredible journey of emancipation. Based on a Suffolk myth focused on an impromptu horse ride from Suffolk to London, “Falling Star” evokes the feelings of total liberation we experience when we sing. Our heroine rides, wind in her hair, with utter abandon through the lunar-light; and as she soars through that night sky her imagination takes her around the world: from the beguiling tones of China, through the tearing afrobeat of Uganda, from the carnival-loving samba sounds of Brazil, to the funky beats of the USA; all taking us right back to bonny old Albion, ending the piece with an ethereal chorale in Old English.
