Oxford is at the heart of the commemoration of Remembrance Day, which this year marks 100 years to the day since the end of the First World War. Owen Rees conducts the Choir in a performance of Johannes Brahms's requiem, in which radiance and dignity take precedence over judgement and condemnation. Before Brahms'™s consoling masterpiece, we hear a piece by George Butterworth, a graduate of Trinity College killed at the Somme, and Vaughan Williams'™s An Oxford Elegy, first performed at The Queen'™s College and narrated here by Old Member and Honorary Fellow Rowan Atkinson.
