A spokesperson said, “Photo contributors are asked to have their photos in by November 5th 2014. Residents can email Scanned photos to bermudachamberchoir@outlook.com. WWI army camp scenes or related photos are also welcome.

“Among the pieces to be performed by the choir will be Edward Elgar’s We Will Remember Them – a simple yet moving setting of Binyon’s poem “For the Fallen”, as well as the classic and heartfelt hymn I Vow to Thee My Country by Gustav Holst. Welsh Contemporary composer Karl Jenkin’s The Armed Man [A Mass for Peace], a truly thrilling, and at times chilling, work will also feature.”

Featured works: Elgar’s We Will Remember Them, Jenkins’ The Armed Man, Holst’s I Vow to Thee, My Country
