Our Remembrance concert takes place a hundred years after the end of the First World War, to the very day. We present a programme of beautiful, atmospheric and thought-provoking music in the glorious acoustic and environment of the School Hall at Queen Anne’s, with its high ceilings and wood panelling to enhance our sound. The programme will include Canadian composer Eleanor Daley’s gorgeous Requiem, accompanied by music from Vaughan Williams, Howells, Parry, Tavener, Eric Whitacre, Will Todd and Paul Mealor.
