Stirring church concert remembering the Great War

Where: St Lawrence Church, Lechlade

When: Saturday, October 27, 7pm-9.30pm

A concert of music poetry and prose remembering The Great War 1914-1918 will take place in St Lawrence Church, Lechlade, on Saturday.

The varied programme features St Lawrence Choir, Rachel Bath (choir director), John Wright (organ and piano), Rebecca McNaught (cello) and Harriet Colley (soprano).

The programme includes movements from Fauré's Requiem and music by composers of the time.

One of the organisers said: "The Great War changed lives in many ways. One hundred years ago the war was drawing to a close. We will remember and give thanks in music, poetry and prose for the many sacrifices made.

"It's a wonderful programme. I'm sure it's going to be very stirring on the night."

At the end of the concert the audience departs in silence to a single bell toll.

Tickets, costing £15 each, will be available on the door and include a glass of wine or fruit juice.

Proceeds from the concert will be divided equally between the St Lawrence Church Restoration and Maintenance Appeal and the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
