In keeping with the spirit of the 2012 Olympiad Gods of Olympus is based on ancient Greece, birthplace of the Olympic games.The movements are inspired by four of the twelve Olympians, the mythical Gods that dwelt on Mount Olympus: Zeus, Ruler of Olympus; Hermes, the Winged Messenger; Aphrodite, Goddess of Love; Hephaestus, Blacksmith & Fire-God.
With the forthcoming Olympic Games, Gods of Olympus is the perfect choice for Spring and Summer concerts.
The text uses Jenkins' own 'mythical' language, first used in Adiemus.
