Hertfordshire Chorus and Newcastle Choral Society are delighted to bring you this combined concert, featuring one of the great choral works by Vaughan Williams and the northern premiere of the critically acclaimed Codebreaker,written by James McCarthy, one of our most talented contemporary composers.

Commissioned by Hertfordshire Chorus in 2012, the music is dramatic, emotional and memorable and charts the life of AlanTuring, famous for breaking the German’s Enigma code during World War Two which possibly shortened the war by two years.We are thrilled that James will be in the audience on the night. Appropriately, this concert is performed in the week when VE 75 celebrations will mark the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe.
