Edington's 63rd annual Festival of Music within the Liturgy commemorates the centenary of the end of the First World War, through the eyes of the war poets.
Siegfried Sassoon, Vera Brittain and Robert Graves are among the poets whose work inspires this week of choral services. As usual, the Festival will feature music by leading composers past and present; this year's line-up includes Sir Hubert Parry, Tomas Luis de Victoria and Philip Radcliffe amongst many others. The Festival commission is composed by Simon McEnery.
