To mark the centenary of the end of WW1, we perform Vaughan Williams's 1936 work Dona nobis pacem in the composer's version for soloists, chorus, string quintet and piano. The work combines the poetry of Walt Whitman and biblical verses in a moving commemoration of the fallen and a plea for peace. Juxtaposed with this are extracts from Howard Goodall's Eternal Light, including a setting of John McCrae's poem In Flanders' Fields, and readings of poetry from the trenches.
