The Durham Hymns

11th November 2018 @ 14:30 - 16:30

A century after the end of the First World War, the anniversary is marked with a reprise of The Durham Hymns, originally premiering at Durham Cathedral during BRASS Festival 2016.

With specially commissioned lyrics by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, using the letters, diaries and experiences of real people living in the county during the war years as inspiration, The Durham Hymns are performed by the Reg Vardy Brass Band, the Centenary Community Choir, and celebrated choral ensemble, Voices of Hope. The Durham Hymns not only commemorate the sacrifice of those who died, but the courage and resilience of those left behind.
