On this centenary Remembrance Sunday, British composers Roderick Williams and Bob Chilcott have created new, and very personal, responses to the tragedy of the First World War.

Remembrance, after all, is about the future, as well as the past. So tonight at Milton Court the BBC Singers and their Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin give the world premieres of two brand new choral works commemorating that War to End All Wars.

And like Britten before him, Bob Chilcott has taken his inspiration from Wilfred Owen, whose poem Futility is the starting point for his new work Move him into the sun. Roderick Williams, meanwhile, is best known as one of our most insightful and articulate baritones. Performed by one of the world’s great chamber choirs, his new piece should be a uniquely touching meditation on events that still scar our imagination, a century on.
