Sansara Consort: For the Fallen


This Remembrance programme explores the enduring depths of human suffering through the juxtaposition of choral music from three masters of the renaissance with twentieth-century compositions by Arvo Pärt and Sir John Tavener. In this way, we call to mind, with equal gravity, conflicts present and past; victims of war and terror, the plight of today's refugees, and the fallen of bygone ages.
