Visiting Holland gives hope following ‘Day of Peace’

MUSIC OF PEACE BY THE BRITISH BACH CHOIR | VISITING HOLLAND GIVES HOPE FOLLOWING ‘DAY OF PEACE’

Music has always been a source of hope and light in troubled times. In this programme of works for choir and organ, the Choir takes you on a journey spanning nearly 500 years, from Renaissance Masters Tallis and Byrd to present day composers.

The Bach Choir is delighted to return to Westminster Cathedral for this celebration of a cappella music conducted by David Hill, and with Philip Scriven at the organ a few days after the official ‘Day of Peace’.

Almost immediately after the concert the choir is taking its message of peace to six cities in the Netherlands, flying the British flag abroad. Cities on the tour are: Rotterdam, Nijmegen, Gronigen, Eindhoven, Heerlen and Tilberg.

David Hill, Musical Director of the Bach Choir, says: “At times like these all of us ask ourselves ‘what can I do?’ My answer to that is always to turn to the greatest music that man has produced, to remind ourselves of the best that we are capable of, to see, hear and feel our Guardian Angels at work. It is surprising what can be achieved when people come together to broadcast a message of hope and love. Join us at Westminster Cathedral to send a message to the world.”
