An evening of beautiful music with the Lymm & District Chorus.
As we approach the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 we commemorate the fallen with music, poetry and prose and a rendition of The Armed Man.
With its evocative melodies and menacing military music, it blends the words of the Mass with diverse sources: the Islamic Call to Prayer, the Mahabharata, the Bible and even folk music.
Borrowing the words of esteemed writers: Kipling, Tennyson and Hiroshima survivor, Sankichi Toge, it traces the downward spiral into war, interspersed with moments of reflection, ending with hope for peace in a new age when sorrow, pain and death can be overcome.
Lymm and District Chorus was formed in 1990. They are a thriving well balanced mixed-voice choir, based in Lymm, attracting enthusiastic amateur singers from Lymm and the surrounding area.
