There is a wonderful opportunity to hear Mezzo Soprano Karina Lucas when she sings in Ripon Cathedral on 18 November at 7:30 pm.
I am delighted to be returning to Ripon Cathedral to sing The Armed Man with Ripon Choral Society and John Dunford. On this occasion I am fortunate to be singing all solo lines in one of Karl Jenkins favourite works describing war and peace. There are so many moving and thought provoking moments in this work but my favourite part to sing is ‘Now the guns have stopped’ describing the guilt felt by some surviving soldiers of World War 1.
The full programme for the evening, as part of Ripon Choral Society’s special series of concerts to commemorate World War One, will be:
John Rutter: Requiem
Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man
John Dunford – conductor
