South West Choral Society Concert

A fantastic concert by the South West Choral Society will be held in St Saviour's Church.

The programme - under the title 'Over the Restless Sea' - will include Clive Jenkins’ Mayflower Pilgrims cantata, which is for baritone soloist and choir, and uses words from William Bradford’s contemporary diary of the voyage and an edition of the psalms published in 1612, as well as two nonconformist hymns. Also planned is Stanford's Songs of the Sea.

The programme will include the Dartmouth Mayflower Anthem, written by Ed Welch and Brian Patten.

Ed Welch has a classical music background. After graduating, he began working for United Artists Music, and he has subsequently written more than 300 pieces for film, theatre and television.

Brian Patten made his name in the 1960s as one of the Liverpool Poets, alongside Adrian Henri and Roger McGough. He has written more than 50 poetry books for both adults and children.
