A special concert will be given at St Peter’s Church Selsey at 4pm on Remembrance Sunday given by The London Chamber Ensemble under its Director Peter Fisher.
Peter Fisher is not new to Selsey. He has performed here to great acclaim, first in a private recital and then in a large concert with international harpist, Gabriella Dal’Ollio.
I went to Southampton last year to hear this same concert based on music of the period 1914-18. It was so wonderful that we persuaded Peter to bring the London Chamber Ensemble to perform in the Parish Church, under the auspices of the newly formed Selsey Music Group. The centrepiece is a specially commissioned work called “No Man’s Land” composed by Clive Jenkins, who will be introducing each of the four WW1 poems which he set to music. Much of the programme is very familiar and it ends with a sing-song to lighten the mood.
Doors open at 3.30pm. Tickets £10 (include Tea in the interval) are available from Ticketsource or on the door.
