Chamber choir Vocalium is delighted to be giving this concert in support of the National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society.\n'1918: Remembrance, Peace and Light' will commemorate 100 years since Armistice Day through music and readings. The programme will remember composers who fought during World War One or who served the war in some capacity – including George Butterworth, Ivor Gurvey, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Maurice Ravel. They will perform Gurney’s Since I Believe in God the Father which only come into print in 2018. \nThey remember these composers in more recent works including Kiss the Bairns. This was written in 2016 by BAFTA award winner and NASS supporter Jessica Curry in collaboration with Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. It forms part of a larger work called The Durham Hymns. Jessica will be attending the concert and she will explain the letter from a serviceman to his wife which forms the backdrop to Kiss the Bairns.
