Crimson Glory
Sunday 04 November 2018, 06:00pm - 09:00pm

A major event to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Crimson Glory uses music, drama, dance and image to tell the story of a Suffolk solider in the war. The story itself is fictional, but the characters are based on real people. We follow the story beginning with life on a Suffolk farm, then hearing Kitchener's call, the voyage to France, and the horrors of the trenches. Through these stages we see the soldier grappling with issues of Christian faith in the midst of conflict- questions just as relevant today as they were 100 years ago. 

The production will involve not only the Cantus Firmus Choir and Orchestra, but the St Edmundsbury Cathedral Choir, the Ex Silentio choir from King Edward VI School, sixth form drama and dance students, and around 200 children from 14 primary schools, as well as an inter-school art exhibition.
