To commemorate the centenary of WW1, the Birmingham Bach Choir has commissioned the poet Euan Tait and its own conductor/composer, Paul Spicer, to write a major choral and orchestral work for performance in July 2014. The work is called “Unfinished Remembering” and is planned as a choral symphony (with soprano and baritone soloists) in four movements. The work also commemorates the more recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and is dedicated to the heroes in each generation.
