This will be a dramatic reading of the poetry by six voices, plus piano and flute. The music will include short extracts from Schumann, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Debussy on the piano, and short improvised and original interludes on the flute.

The Four Quartets has been arranged and directed by Rev. Canon Robin Morrison, who is himself a published author and poet.

TS Eliot received the Nobel Prize for poetry in 1948 and it has been said that the Quartets may well include the most profound poetry of the 20 th century.

Peter Ackroyd CBE, FRSL biographer, novelist and cultural critic wrote, "The Four Quartets are poems about a nation and about a culture which is very severely under threat, and in a sense, you could describe them as a poem of memory, but not the memory of one individual but the memory of a whole civilization."

Tickets are £10 and all proceeds will go to the St Saviour’s Community Food Bank. We look forward to seeing you.

This reading is by kind permission of the TS Eliot Estate, via Faber & Faber Limite.

Ticket bookings at www.stmarys-sunbury.org/eliot or by ringing 01932 785448 Tues-Thurs 10.00am – 2.00pm
