We have recently released two new videos on social media.
The first was a live snippet from the Boxgrove Choral Festival. Bring us, O Lord God by William Harris opened our second ever concert back in 2017, and we sang it in the Festival Concert as well as at the end of our service of Compline, from which this excerpt is taken. You can see in the corner of the shot members of the congregation holding candles – some 50 people came to the service, and we were able to give everyone a candle. The candlelight leant the service a special atmosphere and contributed a particularly long lasting memory of the occasion.
We also released a video which commemorates the hundredth anniversary of the November armistice that ended the First World War. Owain Park’s ‘For the Fallen’ was written for us in November 2016 and was first performed at our inaugural concert.
The text is by Lawrence Binyon, set famously by other composers as well as being adopted by the Royal British Legion as it’s Exhortation for ceremonies of Remembrance to commemorate the fallen of all conflicts.
