The Lost Chord: November 18 - A Farewell to Arms
For the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that formally ended World War I, it’s the second of a special two-part program showcasing “A World Requiem” by John Foulds. Foulds’ work was given its premiere on Armistice Day, 1923, played four more times, then lay dormant for some 80 years until revived on Armistice Day, 2007, for this recording. Also featured will be music by Cecil Coles, who died near the Somme in a heroic attempt to rescue his comrades. War’s the pity, this Sunday at 10 pm.
