Memories and reflections in times of war and turmoil

A sequence of compositions from the time of World War One, and two newly commissioned pieces, focus on the pity and loss of war and examine the importance of music in wartime.

The music is performed by school pupils from Battle, Salehurst, St Mary Star, Saxon Mount and Torfield with Hastings Area Youth Symphony Orchestra and Baritone soloist Matthew Sharp.

Programme includes music by Vaughan Williams and Butterworth as well as two premieres: ‘Steyning’ for baritone and orchestra; ‘We Won’t be Druv’ a cantata for school chorus and orchestra by local composer Tony Biggin.

This is the first concert in Battle’s Festival of Music (October 24th-26th)
