Crossing Borders Festival on Sunday 17th June 2018

Sanctuary on Sea's Crossing Borders Festival returns to celebrate Refugee Week 2018 at St Mary's with three refugee-themed concerts

The Travels of Song explores both the itinerancy and universality of music, where a tune composed in one country could end up adopted by another, sometimes far away, and the compositions of musicians in exile. Peter Phillips and Richard Dering had to leave Elizabethan England because of their religion; Paul Hindemith left Germany in 1938 to avoid more trouble with the Nazis. The programme will also include two songs written by detainees of Yarls Wood. Byrdsong is a group of professional, semi-professional and amateur singers who meet to give concerts of Renaissance polyphony, usually in aid of lovely parish churches and other good causes. This year, they are appearing at both the Brighton and the Petworth Fringes.
