Ahoy! is a work written specifically for Adult choir and Children’s choir by Alexander L’Estrange. It tells the story of the sinking of Henry V111’s battleship the “Mary Rose’ with the loss of more than 400 lives on 19th July 1545. The music fuses Tudor Music with well known sea shanties, producing a show that will be great fun to watch.

At just under an hour, it will appeal especially to families, but also anyone interested in both the history and the music of this era.
Bristol Choral Society Education and Outreach is working on this project in partnership with Bristol Sings Music and Orchard School Bristol.
