Musical Notes from across the Pond 

Music from American and British Twentieth Century Greats 

Tom Williams Conductor 

David Cowen Piano 

Mezzo Soprano Catherine Griffiths

For our final concert of the season, we are delighted to welcome back Mezzo Soprano Catherine Griffiths, who has appeared as a regular visiting soloist with us over the past few years. We present a programme of music from American and British composers of the twentieth century, including Aaron Copland’s distinctive take on the Creation story of the book of Genesis, Michael Tippett’s striking Spirituals from A Child of our Time and the hauntingly beautiful Hymn to St Cecilia of Benjamin Britten, revised aboard MS Axel Johnson as the composer and his partner Peter Pears returned home from emigrating to the States during World War II.
