MUSIC by British composers of the 20th century is being sung by the Camden Choir at St Mary-the-Virgin, Primrose Hill, this Saturday evening.

And joining the choir is brilliant young soprano Nardus Williams, a Trinity Laban graduate and winner of its Gold Medal earlier this year.

Conductor is the choir’s musical director Julian Williamson.

The major work of the evening is Elgar’s The Spirit of England, his setting of three Laurence Binyon poems including the celebrated For the Fallen.

The poem includes the immortal lines:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember them.

Also being performed are pieces by Hubert Parry, Harold Darke, Edgar Bainton, Gerald Finzi and Malcolm Arnold.
