Programme Note

The opening concert of the 2016-2017 season has a sombre feel, commemorating the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. Starting with The Banks of Green Willow by George Butterworth, killed in action on 5th August 1916, aged 31, this work is complemented by Ronald Corp's The Somme - A Lament. The mood lifts with the choral arrangement of Serenade to Music by Butterworth's contemporary, Vaughan Williams and the programme concludes with Brahms's glorious German Requiem.
