A concert of poetry and song in which they review the world and western society before, during and after the Great War.
Although the music and poetry in this concert ranges from Tomkins (1572-1656) to the present – the Hering is the premiere of a 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. Featured are varied and moving responses to war: patriotism, home-sickness, dissent, mourning.
