Audio Excerpt

The Bermudas

Work Introduction

Richard Rodney Bennett’s The Bermudas was written for the choir and orchestra of Leighton Park School. The text is drawn from a larger poetic work, The Emigrants in the Bermudas, by Andrew Marvell, a seventeenth-century English poet and satirist, and narrates the discovery of the Bermuda Islands by a small group of Englishmen. The poem includes the voyageur’s praise to God for having discovered the bountiful island.

The ten-minute cantata is scored for a three-part chorus of trebles, tenors and basses and a small chamber orchestra of double winds, brass, strings, percussion and piano duet.

William B. Wells
