A special concert of remembrance commemorating the centenary of The Great War (1914–1918).

The concert is packed full of reflective excerpts from some colossal choral works; from the glorious serene and peaceful melody of Faure’s ‘Pie Jesu’ and Rutter’s soulful ‘Lux aeterna’ to the instantly recognisable power of Verdi’s emotive ‘Dies irae’. Amongst the Requiem excerpts, the Orchestra will perform music of war and peace, including Adrian Sutton’s epic orchestral Suite based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel War Horse, Karl Jenkins’ captivating ‘Benedictus’ from his spectacular Mass for Peace, The Armed Man and Holst’s astrological portrayals of ‘Mars’, the bringer of War and ‘Venus’, the bringer of Peace.
