“Prom 62 saw the Proms debut of choral superman, Eric Whitacre, conducting his own Eric Whitacre Singers with the BBC Singers. The centrepiece was the world premiere of his BBC commission: Higher Faster Stronger. That’s the olympic motto and the composer divides his massed forces into three choirs who, in patterns of tricksy rhythms, seem to race each other throughout the piece.”
