DURHAM HYMNS - SONGS OF WAR, ST. BRANDON'S CHURCH, BRANCEPETH CASTLE, DURHAM - 7.30PM
SONGS OF WAR is an imaginative collaboration between men in HM Prison Frankland and four of the region’s most acclaimed young singer-songwriters: Barry Hyde, Elizabeth Corney, Lindsay Hannon and Bethany Coyle. Together they have produced a memorable suite of new songs that will touch the heart.
The project drew inspiration from The Durham Hymns, the World War One project commissioned by the Northern Regional Brass Band Trust as part of the region’s commemorative programme.
The Durham Hymns created a new suite of hymns that reflected the events and experiences of real people in the county. Lyrics were commissioned from the Poet Laureate poet Carol Ann Duffy and music from Jonathan Bates, Jessica Curry and Orlando Gough.
