A Vision of Albion

Sat 19th Nov

4.00pm - 5.30pm

A recital by St Peter’s Singers of sublime choral and organ music to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams, including works by Vaughan Williams, Stanford, Holst and Parry

This celebration of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ choral music, given in honour of his 150th anniversary, explores some of the colours and sounds of what we now recognize as the greatest and most authentic voice of English music to emerge after the Great War.

The programme encompasses both folksong and some of his most sublime spiritual outpourings.

The concert will last about an hour and a half, including an interval, during which refreshments will be served.
