Durham Alumni sing Dyson world premiere

The post I saw on Facebook about this concert says “imagine if Dyson in D lasted around 50 minutes and was scored for full orchestra… ” – which seems like a pretty tempting prospect to me. The work in question is the world première of George Dyson’s choral symphony ‘O Give Thanks unto the Lord’ which takes place in London tomorrow night (Thursday 12 March). The concert is being put on in association with Durham University Music Society, with choir and soloists drawn from Durham University alumni and the programme also includes the university’s chancellor, Sir Thomas Allen singing Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs. More details about Dyson’s work and the concert can be found here:
