Edward Thomas: A Centenary Celebration in Words and Music

Saturday 29 April 2017, 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Oxford Bach Soloists

The Oxford Bach Soloists and a solo cellist perform an entirely new and haunting work, created by the composer Colin Riley with text by landscape writer Robert McFarlane, which brings together fragments of Thomas’ collected poetry including lines found in his uniform pocket when he died 100 years ago in April 1917 on the Western Front – ‘Roads Shining Like River Up Hill After Rain’. The event includes readings from the work of this great poet described by Ted Hughes as ‘the father of us all’. 

Tickets £12
