Village Green Preservation Society and Arthur

Vox sings the Kinks at Shoreditch Town Hall

In the late 1960s, the Kinks released two albums that countered the optimism of the decade with a bittersweet evocation of what had been lost. 1968’s charismatic Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, was followed in 1969 by Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire), about a carpet-layer forced to emigrate to Australia to find work.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of these albums Ray Davies has commissioned composer Harvey Brough to rearrange songs from Arthur, to accompany his triumphant choral version of The Village Green Preservation Society, premiered in 2018.

Featuring

Voiceovers by Ray Davies

Soloists Clara Sanabras and Rick Leigh

Plus a new doo-wop super group:  Naomi Hammerton, Mike Henry, Wills Morgan and Harvey Brough

Help us to record Music on the Mind

Music on the Mind is an meditation of the pain – and the creativity – of mental illness. It is one of the most ambitious projects we have ever undertaken, and also the most important – and after two triumphant live performances, we are determined to record it for posterity.Vox_Holloway_Choir_Poster final

“A simply fantastic project” – Stephen Fry.

“Exquisite” – Emma Thompson.

“Fabulous words, fabulous music” – Katie Derham, producer of Radio 3’s In Tune.

But recording comes at a cost. So we have set up a Just Giving page to help raise the money. We are already two thirds of the way to our target of £5,000. We would be so grateful for your support.
