Remembrance Sunday

This Remembrance Sunday, Anna will be in Wokingham to attend the service at St. Paul’s Church. The choir there have been hard at work rehearsing From Flanders and will be giving the world premiere performance.

Anna dedicated From Flanders to the memory of the Potter family of Wokingham, the family of her great-grandmother. The family sent six brothers to war, only 3 of whom returned home, two of those being severely wounded. The significance of the first performance of From Flanders being at St. Paul’s church is front-page news in Wokingham this week: read the story in the Wokingham Times.
