City of Bristol Choir commemorates Remembrance Sunday with a performance of reflective and meditative choral music.

The choir is joined by professional cellist Juliet McCarthy to perform works which reflect the themes of peace and reconciliation, including In War, a setting by Malcolm Archer of words by Winston Churchill.

Duruflé's atmospheric setting of the Requiem mass completes the programme. Its combination of timeless plainsong melodies with hushed celestial harmonies contrasted with dramatic outbursts from the choir and organ make it a moving piece to hear live in concert.

The concert is given in support of the work of the Royal British Legion.

St Alban's Church, Coldharbour Road, Westbury Park, Bristol

From Clifton in Bristol:
Go up Whiteladies Road and get into the middle lane at the top of Blackboy Hill. Follow the road round to the right and stay in the middle lane marked 'Redland'. Take the second exit off the roundabout, with the BUPA hospital on your left. Carry on down that road to a roundabout. Turn left, then immediately first right into Coldharbour Road. The church is on your left just after the second turning on the left.

From Gloucester Road in Bristol:
Drive from the arches up towards the traffic lights (away from the City Centre, towards Horfield). At the lights next to 'Amici', turn left, then immediately right at the next set of lights into Cranbrook Road. Keep going to a set of traffic lights, and turn left onto Coldharbour Road. St Alban's is on your right just after the third turning on the right.

From the M4:
Follow the M4 to the M4/M5 junction, then get onto the M5 southbound (South West). From the M5 take junc 17 and follow signs for A4018 into Bristol. Go over 3 roundabouts (1. Cribbs Causeway, 2. Rugby ground, 3, Crow pub on right). Keep going over 3 sets of traffic lights at junctions, until you get to a roundabout - in total 2 miles or so from Crow pub roundabout. At this roundabout, turn left into North View, then immediately right into Etloe Road, which becomes Bayswater Road. Carry on to the end of the road, and St Alban's church is on the corner on your right hand side.
