The evening features Parry’s I was glad, originally written for the coronation of King Edward VII, Ode on the Nativity and Jerusalem.
It also celebrates Parry’s legacy through the works of two other great British composers: Parry’s former pupil, Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Elgar’s Cello Concerto, who learnt much of his craft from studying articles Parry wrote for Grove’s Dictionary of Music.
