Our first concert of the season marks both the centenary of the Armistice and the death of Hubert Parry, who had a close association with Oxford Bach Choir over many years.
We therefore perform Parry's Songs of Farewell, composed during the First World War, of which the Oxford Bach Choir gave the world premiere as a complete cycle. The concert also includes music reflecting on the war by Stanford, Ireland, Vaughan Williams and Elgar, as well as The wind on the Downs from Jonathan Dove's 2014 cantata For an unknown soldier, recently recorded by Oxford Bach Choir. The music will be interspersed with readings appropriate to the theme of war and remembrance.
