Carlos Del Cueto (PhD Musicology, Clare College) swaps the pen for the baton next week, when he conducts Noye’s Fludde by Benjamin Britten as part of the Cambridge Music Festival. It is a challenging work for a conductor, who is required to bring together the combined forces of children’s choir, professional soloists, and stratospheric recorders, not to mention God, into one coherent whole. And with gossips interfering at regular intervals.

Noyes FluddePerformances are on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 November, at 7.30pm in Great St Mary’s Church.Performances last one hour, and full details are available here.
