In Remembrance 1918. Poetry and song in which we review the world and western society before, during and after the great conflict. Although the music and poetry in this concert ranges from Tomkins (1572-1656) to the present, the Hering is the premiere of his new version of Lachrymose – at its heart is the conflict known as the Great War whose aftermath and influence continue to resonate. Conflict was and is, it seems, ever with us. What follows are varied and moving responses to war: patriotism, home-sickness, dissent, mourning.

This concert is one of our series of Remembrance concerts, commemorating the end of the First World War
