Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo

BBC Singers/John Wilson

Picture of John Wilson

A real charmer of a piece by Joseph Horovitz and Michael Flanders tells the story of Noah and his Ark.

John Wilson takes a break from the orchestral podium to conduct the BBC Singers in Joseph Horovitz’s delightful score, written in 1970 to words by Michael Flanders, about Noah and his Ark. It’s a delightful piece full of wit and charm, and will appeal to children and adults alike.
