From the Earth to the Moon

‘To Shiver the Sky’ is an oratorio about the history of flight, and mankind's quest to conquer the heavens. Told through the words of 11 of our greatest astronomers, inventors, visionaries and pilots, it charts our relentless need to explore the universe, defy our earthly bonds, reach for the face of God, and ultimately claim our place among the stars. It's sung in a panoply of languages: English, Latin, Italian, German, French, Polish, Russian, and Sanskrit.
