The Choir of Royal Holloway, conducted by Rupert Gough, has given a stunning recital at the China-UK International Music Festival, in the Octagon Building of Queen Mary University of London. CUIMF was founded in early 2018, and is co-hosted by the China-UK International Music Festival Organising Committee, the Music Department of Queen Mary University of London, the London Confucius Institute at SOAS, and the Chinese Classical Instruments Studio (CCIS). Cultural exchange is very much to the fore, with the choir’s programme containing a mix of music from both China and the UK. Many of the Chinese songs came from Half Moon Rising, published by Edition Peters.
