CA Guildford branch special event: 'The Song of Arms and a Man'
5 October 2019

'The Song of Arms and a Man' is coming to Charterhouse, Godalming on Saturday 5 October. It tells the story of Aeneas' escape from Troy, his stay with Dido and his struggle to fulfil his destiny as founder of Rome. The Latin readings from Virgil's Aeneid are selective, but with the help of an English narration tell the whole story of the poem, rarely heard, in a unique presentation of the original verse, echoing the ancient culture of public performance of poetry.

George Sharpley's adaptation of this extraordinary musical poem is read by Emma Kirkby, Matthew Hargreaves, Elizabeth Donnelly and Llewellyn Morgan.

This is for all, including those new to Latin.

For details of the performance and tickets see here. Concessions are available for school groups.
