We open this sea-themed Sunday with the first performance of extraordinary new soundscapes specially composed for the occasion by young Sheffielders, alongside sea-shanties including the Rio Grande and vivid musical images. Inspired by the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the work is by turns dramatic, storm-lashed, and eventually becalmed as we sail home.
