About

The Traveller, for choir, children’s choir, orchestra, tenor, violin and speaker, was the third in a series of four major works with words by Vikram Seth and music by Alec Roth, commissioned jointly over four years by the Salisbury, Chelsea and Lichfield Festivals (2006-09). Each work featured the violinist Philippe Honoré as soloist, and each took a different geographical/cultural area as its starting point.

Earth and Sky, for children’s choir and piano (with optional percussion), was commissioned by the BBC for the Proms 2000 season. In keeping with the millennial theme, a work presenting a vision of the future was requested.

Ex Cathedra has performed Alec’s music in over 200 concerts since 2007. There have been large scale commissions and recordings, alongside many short ‘gems’. It is of consistently high quality with moments of absolute genius. The relationship continues to flourish.
