Programme Note

Laura Rossi's Voices of Remembrance, written to commemorate the soldiers who lived and died in WWI, combines choral pieces with poetry readings.  The choir is delighted that Vanessa Redgrave will deliver the readings at the performance in Dartington's Great Hall. Voices of Remembrance premiered in 2015 and brings together ten of the greatest WWI poems with her own composition. She wanted to create something humane and widely accessible out of deep bereavement.  A composer for film and television, orginally from Devon, Laura Rossi has dealt with WWI themes before; the Imperial War Museum commissioned her to write music for the 1916 silent film Battle of the Somme,which was widely performed in 2016.
