A revival of Parry's Judith

Description:

Witness the first full London performance since the 19th century of Hubert Parry’s stunning oratorio Judith at this concert under the baton of William Vann.
The oratorio, Charles Hubert Hastings Parry’s first, was premiered in Birmingham in August 1888 and was an instant success, consolidating his reputation as a composer of large-scale orchestral and choral writing.
It is a work of persistent quality, vigorous choruses and dramatic solo roles, which also contains the melody that later, under the name ‘Repton’, became the famous hymn ‘Dear Lord and Father of Mankind’. Yet it has been largely forgotten, and neglected for the best part of a century.
