The Jabberwock and other animalsA Concert of Beastly Nonsense

Monday 8th July 2019, 7:30pm, Christ Church Cathedral

THE JABBERWOCK
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son! 
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! 
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun 
      The frumious Bandersnatch!” 

Nonsense these words may seem, but they carry a deadly warning - the world is full of a host of strange and wonderful beasts against which our only defence may be laughter.

From the tale of Jim (who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion), to the hazards of the Tsetse fly and the gently smiling crocodile, we've assembled a menagerie of over a hundred years of music exquisitely detailing the surprising silliness of the world around us.

Centred around Liza Lehmann's 1908 setting of "The Songs that Came out Wrong" from Alice in Wonderland, and also featuring music by Judith Weir, Thea Musgrave, and others, join us in Christ Church (the spiritual home of Alice) for a frivolous evening of whimsical ditties, cautionary tales, and general nonsense.
