A Sea Symphony and more
Sat, 9 June 2018
Hertford Choral Society
One of the first symphonies to use a choir throughout and as an integral part of the musical texture, Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony helped set the stage for a new era of symphonic and choral music in Britain. The text comes from Walt Whitman’s poetry, which uses images of brave sailors exploring the vast oceans as a colourful metaphor for the voyage through life of the human soul. The programme also features HCS accompanist Sue Graham Smith in Finzi’s gorgeous Eclogue for piano and strings and includes Mendlessohn’s Hebrides Overture plus the colourful and beautiful anthem They that go down to the sea in ships by Herbert Sumsion.
