Armistice Day Memories Linger On…

Armistice Day stirred memories for volunteers at Corinium Radio.

It was all thanks to a piece of music composed by local musician Andrew Hodges with players from Cirencester’s The Cloud Ensemble.

The composition is entitled Armistice Amen and is a setting of The Magnificat. It was completed for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day 2018.

People told us that they had discovered a performance of the moving piece on You Tube featuring some poignant visuals.

Why did it stir memories for us here at the radio station? Well, as it happens, the piece was first broadcast on Corinium Radio back in 2018. And last year it was performed at Minchinhampton Church.
