Lincoln Choral Society in harmony with Neustadt Liedertafel choir.
Written by Ed Wellman on 21st October 2014
Karl Jenkins’ popular and moving ‘ The Armed Man, a Mass for Peace’, will be performed in Lincoln Cathedral at 7.30 pm on Saturday 25th October.
Lincoln Choral Society with the Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra, fine soloists and members of the Neustadt Liedertafel choir look forward to commemorating all the fallen in battle over the last years. Other items include the stirring Fanfare for the Common Man, and if you missed hearing FS Kelly’s ‘In Memoriam Rupert Brooke’ at the Proms, don’t worry, you can hear it live in Lincoln Cathedral.
Conductor Neville Turner will also be in charge of ‘Hymn to the Fallen ‘from Elgar’s ‘ Spirit of England’. This final movement includes his most beautiful setting of ‘they shall not grow old’ and Neville will be conducting from a score once owned by Sir Henry Wood .
Members of LCS will pay a return visit to Germany in November to sing the piece with their twin choir and also present there will be members of Neustadt’s other twin town, Macon so it will be a real international effort.
