Downside School - In Memoriam Howells Requiem 11 Nov 2023
AboutJoin us as, for the first time, the Downside Chamber Choir joins forces with the Swan Singers Chamber Choir of Wells in a concert of sublime choral music for Remembrance Day. Featuring Herbert Howells’ ‘Requiem’, the concert also includes the first performance of the organ and choir version of ‘Eternal Father, Melita’ by local composer Hywel Davies, written to mark the 100th anniversary of the battle of Jutland, plus two choral gems: ‘Valiant for Truth’ by Vaughan Williams and ‘Greater Love’ by John Ireland. The Abbey Church is the perfect setting and the concert starts at 7:30pm.
Tickets cost £7 each for adults, free for under 18s.
There will be a retiring collection in aid of the Abbey Restoration Fund.
