Exploring themes of slavery and freedom, Mighty River combines contemporary classical techniques with spirituals which were introduced to Hull in 1871 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers – an African-American a cappella choir of ex-slaves. The piece, written for orchestra, takes its inspiration from William Wilberforce the English politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade who was, very fittingly, a native of Hull. Errollyn Wallen has been elected Honorary Fellow of Mansfield College, Oxford, in recognition of her distinguished contribution to scholarship in the field of contemporary British music and her exceptional achievements as a composer. Conferment took place on Feb. 6th 2015 followed by a talk by Errollyn.
