Rutter Requiem and Vaughan Williams Dona Nobis Pacem – November 2018

This concert took place just a few days after the 100thanniversary of the Armistice that brought an end to the First World War. YMS had chosen three pieces that reflect the darkness and anguish of war, but which also express a message of reassurance with a hope for an enduring peace.
