Remembrance - Across the Bridge of Hope

On the eve of the Armistice Centenary, The Lea Singers present a dramatic and innovative programme for Remembrance in the Lady Chapel of St Albans Abbey, charting the world’s conflicts from Agincourt to the present day.

Transformed into an intimate concert setting, the nave of the Lady Chapel will become a stage, blurring the boundaries between performers and audience to draw you into the the emotion of the music.

The programme combines the swagger and swing of Ward Swingle’s Agincourt Song, a poignant letter written by a dying soldier to his family in the American Civil War, a new commission from Peter Foggitt¬† which weaves together the English and German versions of Silent Night to tell the story of the famous Christmas Truce, and comes right up to date with music from the Arab world to reflect the conflicts of today. With music, lighting and recorded audio, this concert will be a moving and immersive reflection on the human cost of war.

Retiring collection in aid of Care International, a charity working to alleviate suffering in the Yemen.
