REGER Nachlied Op 138 No 3
ETHEL SMYTH Komm, süsser Tod

Vocal collective SANSARA present a sequence of words and music telling the story of the White Rose resistance: five students and a professor who stood up to Nazism and paid with their lives. Powerful choral music by British and German composers is interspersed with readings from the letters, diaries and pamphlets of the White Rose in vivid new translations by students from the University of Oxford’s White Rose Project.

Please note the change of repertoire from the brochure and previously advertised programme.
