    Voices of Remembrance

    10:00 pmThe Quire, Southwell Minster

    This year’s late night sequence of choral music and spoken text reflects the theme of commemoration: Tavener’s Song for Athene found a wider audience when performed at the funeral of Princess Diana; A Child’s Prayer is an extremely touching tribute piece composed following the slaughter of primary school children at Dunblane. Immortal Bach is a timeless reworking of a simple Bach chorale ‘Komm, süßer Tod’ (‘Come, sweet Death’) to provide a glimpse of eternity. The Minster’s late night atmosphere and the Festival’s outstanding professional choir will combine to provide an occasion of powerful emotional impact.
