Unforgettable weekend, performing Britten’s War Requiem - set to Wilfred Owen WW1 poetry - in Leeds Town Hall with @CityGlasgowChor, @LFChorus, @BBCPhilharmonic. Thinking about my grandfather who was shot and later gassed in the final year of WW1 (photo 1918)
@R_becca_Taylor @LFChorus @CityGlasgowChor @LeedsTownHall @BBCPhilharmonic @JoshuaEllicott @BenjaminAppl It was beautiful, breath-taking & bombastic! Wilfred Owen’s poetry was thread through & the chorus voices from ‘behind’ made it seem like it came from heaven! The, at times, ‘angry’ violins & percussions felt like a’ battle’. I could ‘hear’ guns. A feast for eyes & ears! Bravo!!!
