STANLEY JOHNSON, NARRATOR

R. D. Blackmore’s timeless novel, Lorna Doone has never been out of print since it was first published in 1869. His story put Exmoor’s people, history and landscapes firmly on the map, and today remains something of a global phenomenon, with numerous TV and film adaptations.

The author was a pupil at Blundell's school, and he set the opening chapters of his book at the school. So it is fitting that current students at the school should have specially composed the music for this concert, setting some of the poems contained in the novel.

The music will be performed by three choirs, and they will be supported by the Wells Cathedral School String Quartet. This celebration of the 150th anniversary of the book’s publication will be an unmissable occasion.
