World War II Hymns of Ralph Vaughan Williams

September 3rd is the 80th anniversary of Britain’s declaration of war on Nazi Germany. Ralph Vaughan Williams, one of the most influential composers of hymns of the 20th century, wrote several hymns to help strengthen the morale of the public as the war progressed. They are seldom sung today, but Trinity Cathedral downtown, part of the Anglican Communion, is providing Pittsburgh with such an opportunity! 

Join us on Tuesday, September 3 at 12:10 PM and find out the story behind the hymns, and the role Vaughan Williams played in helping Britons survive almost six years of the war that still shapes the world we live in.

Those attending are welcome to bring a drink and/or snack into the cathedral. The presentation will be followed by a tour of the Cathedral led by docent William Kaiser.
