A concert for the benefit of seafaring charities, to commemorate the centenary of the naval Battle of Jutland and the lives of all who died at sea during the First World War.

In Vaughan Williams’ magnificent choral First Symphony the soloists and choir pay tribute in the poetry of Walt Whitman to the seafarers of ‘all seas, all ships and all nations’ – the brave captains and intrepid sailors whom the sea unites in life, or death. Both the symphony and Britten’s Sea Interludes depict the sea’s ever-changing moods with brilliant orchestral imagery.

This concert is promoted by London Concert Choir on behalf of Seafarers UK with support from The Royal British Legion.
