PARRY: Songs of Farewell
MOORE: Three Prayers of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, and also the 100th anniversary of Hubert Parry’s death, The Ebor Singers perform his Songs of Farewell, complimented by Thomas Tallis’ Lamentations.
The English choral tradition has long given voice to the sentiments of loss, and in the context of readings – including extracts from the poignant First World War diaries of the grandfather of the choir’s director – we see these sentiments expressed musically by Tallis, Purcell, Parry and Philip Moore.
