Vaughan Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem & Haydn: Nelson Mass

Dona Nobis Pacem is as relevant today as when it premièred in 1936; an impassioned plea for peace in a war-torn world and a fitting tribute to all who have lost their lives in war. Composed at a time when the world was facing another terrible conflict, Vaughan Williams draws on Biblical text, the liturgy, the poetry of Walt Whitman 
and English orator John Bright to promote collective action and hope for peace.

Haydn’s Nelson Mass (or Mass for Troubled Times) was written at a time of intense fear and unrest in Europe. One of Haydn’s later works, this dramatic work conveys many emotions, from terror to joy.

The Occam Singers are joined by New London Sinfonia at this concert raising funds for local bereavement charity, Cruse West Surrey.
