We mark this significant occasion with a specially curated event highlighting WW1 composers and poets. Instrumental, solo vocal and choral music will be juxtaposed with readings, while Dunblane Cathedral will provide the link with the community, including personal mementoes of the 1914-18 war.
Music will include works by: Saint Saens, Hindemith, Butterworth, Gurney, Head, Browne, Farrar, Purcell Warren and Coles, as well as popular songs by Novello, Haydn Wood and others. There is also a new work by Kevin Duggan, a haunting setting of Isobel Wyllie Hutchison’s poem, ‘Liège’.
Information about family members who fought in WW1 and details about some of the composers who died in the conflict will be on display in the cathedral.
In conjunction with our event, there is a one day WW1-themed exhibition in Dunblane Museum from 11.30 to 3.00 on the day of the concert. The museum is just across the square from the cathedral.
