Free Admission - Retiring Collection

Featuring some of Vaughan Williams' finest spiritual music, this programme includes the 5 Mystical Songs, composed before Vaughan Williams' took part in the Great War, and the powerful cantata Dona nobis pacem ('Give us peace'), written years later when he and others had fully assimilated that traumatic experience.

Marking the centenary of the time when Europe was trying to make peace, this concert completes St Peter's Singers' season of concerts remembering the end of the Great War.
