Wednesday 4th April 2012 - 8.00pm The Saviour - William Southcombe Lloyd Webber
On this Wednesday evening in Holy Week there will be a performance of The Saviour, A Meditation upon the Death of Christ for tenor and bass soloists, choir and organ. The musical setting is by William Lloyd Webber (1914-1982) who taught at the Royal College of Music, was Director of the London College of Music from 1964, and was father of those two illustrious musical sons, composer Andrew and cellist Julian.
Entitled The Saviour, the narrative is given by the tenor and bass soloists with commentary by both choir and congregation (there will be three familiar hymns for the audience to join in with).
This performance is given free of charge by Brockham Choral Society as one of a series of charitable events during Holy Week in churches around the area. Along with professional soloists and organist, the performance will be full of drama and presents a wonderful opportunity to share in a devotional act of worship during this most important week in the church's year.
There will be a collection at the end of the evening with all proceeds donated to the church.
