NFE is pleased to announce, courtesy of Adey Grummet, the Winter 2003 coming of 'Deep Blue: Sea Songs, Love Songs' (music by Orlando Gough, Richard Chew and The Shout). The Shout is an extraordinary phenomenon. A choir of diverse voices and fantastically talented individuals, it has been called a 'vocal big band', a 'club choir', a 'vocal Stomp', a 'dangerous choir', a 'choir of Babel', a ‘choral phenomenon’. It is all of these things.

'Deep Blue' is a semi-staged concert of songs about the sea and about love. Love songs with a difference: about falling in love in a sweetshop, about an old man caring for his wife after she has had a stroke, about housework, about electricity, algebra, obsessive work and desire….. The lyrics come from, among other sources, the Song of Solomon and a packet of Love Hearts.
