Following the Exhibition (see report below)
, a evening concert was held on Saturday 2nd July in Dymock Parish Church to commemorate artists who were killed or whose lives were change by the First World War. Most were little known so their works are seldom heard because their lives were cut so short.
The concert was given by Peter Wilman, a local Tenor born in Gloucester but now a regular performer with
Welsh Opera, supported by our Musical Director, Bob May on piano and organ, and our augmented choir - The St Mary Singers. (Return to top)
The extensive programme included works by Edward Elgar, Francis Purcell Warren, George Butterworth, Frederick Semptimus Kelly, William Denis Browne, John Ireland, Maurice Ravel, Ivor Gurney, Frank Maurice Jephson, George Jerrard Wilkinson, Willie B Manson and Clifford Bax. (Return to top)
