In this Remembrance Sunday concert, Exultate Singers performs beautiful choral music on the themes of hope and light in the wonderfully resonant acoustic of St George's Bristol. This is chance to experience many gems of the choral repertoire including ethereal anthems by Harris, Parry and Stanford and more contemporary reflections on loss by Philip Moore and James Whitbourn.

We also remember those whose anniversaries were commemorated this year including Anne Frank and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The sequence of uplifting and deeply poignant music is woven together with inspiring poems by Derek Mahon, Carol Ann Duffy and Philip Larkin.
