World Première for GCS

On 16th November 2013, GCS will perform Britten’s stunning War Requiem but this will be preceded by the first performance anywhere in the world of a piece for boys’ choir by the noted German composer, Torsten Rasch.

The short work is entitled Here Dead We Lie and was a gift to one of our members, Anwen Walker in recognition of her help in the commissioning of a major work by Torsten for the 2014 Three Choirs Festival in Worcester on the subject of war and reconciliation.

This adds greatly to an already thrilling prospect for our November concert.
