Newbury Choral Society presents:
For the Fallen
Music of the First World War
St Nicolas Church, Newbury,
This concert is a chance to hear three rarely performed works reflecting the personal reactions of composers to one of the darkest periods of European history.
As early as 1916 Sir Edward Elgar recognised the power of Laurence Binyon's words, "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old", and set the poems to music in his last major choral work, The Spirit of England.
French virtuoso organist-composer Marcel Dupré conveyed his horror at the ravages of war in his De Profundis, a work of great quality and depth. Gustav Holst's Ode to Death was considered by Vaughan Williams to be among his finest creations.
George Butterworth's evocation of the English countryside, The Banks of Green Willow, is particularly poignant given that he lost his life at the Battle of the Somme.
Newbury Choral Society will be joined by Southern Sinfonia and organist Steve Bowey, and professional soloists including soprano Claire Bessent and bass Colin Campbell. Cathal Garvey conducts.
