The Bach Choir joins forces with The Royal British Legion in a tribute to the memory of those who lost their lives in the First World War – with all proceeds going to the Legion.
The choir, joined by the Philharmonia Orchestra and conducted by David Hill, performs works by Ralph Vaughan-Williams, Edward Elgar, Samuel Barber and Hubert Parry with readings given by celebrity guests.
