Dr Conor Morrissey will give a Haileybury Lecture 'The Dual Life of Erskine Childers' on Thursday 4 October.

Dr Morrissey is Departmental Lecturer in Irish History in Hertford College, University of Oxford.

Following his PhD at Trinity College Dublin, he worked for a spell in the National Museum of Ireland, before returning to Trinity for an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship, 2015-2016.

Sunday 4 November 2018 at 7.30 pm
Benjamin Britten's War Requiem

Big School (view map)

Conducted by Andrew O’Brien and Simon Bland and made up of musicians from our school, old pupils, Hertford Philharmonia, Royston and local prep schools. This will be a rare opportunity to hear Britten’s masterpiece. No piece of art can bring back a single one of the millions of people killed in armed conflict since Wilfred Owen’s death in 1918, but the War Requiem can challenge us to think about what it is we ask people to do when we send them to war. This is what art is for, and it’s important. Commissioned to celebrate the opening of the new cathedral at Coventry, built to replace the one destroyed by bombs. The War Requiem, is regarded by many as a masterpiece in the non-operatic sphere. Britten intersperses his setting of the traditional Latin Missa pro Defunctis with nine poems of the First World War poet Wilfred Owen. Written in a direct style, the War Requiem carries overwhelming conviction, and concert audiences the world over continue to respond to its timeless relevance. Please follow the link below for tickets.
