The brainchild of John Collins, producer of The Specials' iconic "Ghost Town", Choral Dub is the fusion of renaissance choral music with dub reggae.
Blending choral works by Thomas Tallis, Antonio Lotti, William Byrd et al, performed by classically trained singers, with Collins' dub reggae arrangements and mixes.
These seemingly disparate genres have surprisingly much in common. Together, each is shown in a new light...
Salvator Mundi (Tallis)
If Ye Love Me (Tallis)
O Sacrum Convivium (Tallis)
With performances at St John's Buckhurst Hill, Waltham Abbey Church (where a young Thomas Tallis was organist) and St Mary's Walthamstow, to amazed and delighted audiences, "proof of concept" has been well and truly demonstrated.
