||Next Concert||Past Concerts|
|Our next concert will be Poppies and Holly Berries in which we will commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War and then celebrate the joy of Advent.
The concert will be performed twice:
- Saturday 24th November 2018 at St Catherine of Siena, Tilehurst, RG31 5LN
- Saturday 1st December 2018 at St Mary the Virgin, Winnersh, RG41 5NA
We will commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War with contrasting poetry written at the time of the war. Firstly, we will perform a new setting, by Jeremy Rawson, of two Wilfred Owen poems which tell us the reality of the war from the front line. Then, in Elgar's "The Spirit of England", the poems by Laurence Binyon give the view from home. These include the famous lines: "They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old".
After the interval we will celebrate the beginning of Advent, with well-known and joyful carols looking forward to the birth of Christ.
Retiring collections at each concert will support charities chosen by the churches. The St Catherine's concert will be in aid of this year's Poppy Appeal and the St Mary's concert will be in aid of SalGO Assist.
