22 November 2014: Standing As I Do Before God

St Denys Church, York

Music from 1600 to today overshadowed by the horrors of war and loss: Alonso Lobo’s expressive setting of the Lamentations of Jeremiah makes a fitting prelude to Hubert Parry’s choral masterpiece, the Songs of Farewell, written during the course of the First World War.

Cecilia McDowall’s new work movingly sets the words of nurse Edith Cavell, tried and executed for treason in 1915.
