In memory of the late Revd. David Dixon: VOCES8 sing "Lux Aeterna"

Here is a recording of Voces8 singing "Lux Aeterna" which is a setting of "Nimrod" from Sir Edward Elgar's Enigma variations.

Announcing the piece, which Voces8 performed at a concert in Kendal this evening, a member of the group who grew up in Cumbria dedicated the performance to the late Reverend Canon David Dixon from Millom, who died this week.

It was a fantastic performance and a very moving tribute to a man who will be greatly missed.

You can read here on the North West Evening Mail website an article about a book which Canon Dixon write about his childhood in Thwaites, near Millom, in the 1930's.

Rest in Peace
