Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge: Vaughan Williams

Love is a subject that has inspired poets and composers from time immemorial
– and is also the subject of Thame Chamber Choir’s concert at 8 p.m. on
Saturday 20 th October in St Mary’s Church, Thame, part of the 2018 Thame
Arts & Literature Festival. Together with international tenor Adrian Thompson,
the choir will be presenting music and words on the theme of love, by
composers as diverse as Monteverdi, Holst, Brahms, Eric Whitacre and Jerome
Kern, interspersed with poetry and prose.
The evening will take us from love’s first bloom, through lust, including some
rather risqué words (fortunately in Italian!), partnership, betrayal and on to love
in old age…and beyond.
Tickets are available from the TAL Box Office, price £10, and at the door price
£12. Tickets are free for under 18s.
