About the Event
Includes works by Vera Brittain, Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen,
Arnold Schoenberg, Elgar, Debussy, Ravel and Isaac Rosenberg
whose birthday it would have been today.
Baroness Williams says “I am pleased to hear from
the New London Synagogue, especially at a time when
co-operation and friendship between different faiths is
so important. My own background is Anglican, Catholic
and Jewish, my brother having married a very
distinguished member of the Sephardic sect.
The programme you outlined is compelling and I would
very much welcome taking part in this special evening,
and hope you would not mind me making a few remarks to say a little bit
about my own background in the two World Wars, with regard to my own
parents and family. I am both moved and honoured by your invitation, which I
very much appreciate.”
