An armada of historic vessels from the age of sail, steam and diesel performed a live, moving, operatic concerto of ships’ steam whistles, bells, horns, sirens and cannon as the centrepiece of this years Thames Festival.

Recall Sound recorded the magnificent fleet calling to the shore, waters and airwaves against the backdrop of The O2 and London Bridge.

 

At Tower Bridge, the curtain opened as the bascules rise and the company of ships enters the theatre of the Pool of London.
