Our concert is a celebration of English music and takes its title from Siegfried Sassoon’s poem inspired by the signing of the Armistice in 1918.
We have grandeur in Elgar’s Give unto the Lord; joy and tenderness in Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs; characteristic re-workings of hymn-tunes in Two Psalms by Holst; profound spirituality in Finzi’s Welcome Sweet and Sacred Feast; and the majestic splendour of Zadok the Priest.
Couple these with the unusual addition of a clarinet to the accompaniment of John Rutter’s The Lord is my Light and my Salvation, the first performance of Andrew Parnell’s Everyone Sang, also accompanied by clarinet and organ, and the skills and virtuosity of the baritone Jonathan Midgely, the clarinettist Koren Wilmer and the organist Edmund Aldhouse, and we can look forward to a true celebration of English music.
