Virtual World Premiere of Howard Goodall's Never to Forget

Jul. 15, 2020

Virtual World Premiere of Howard Goodall's <em>Never to Forget</em>

Howard Goodall's Never to Forget is a virtual, visual and acoustic memorial project dedicated to UK health and care workers who have died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioned by the London Symphony Chorus, the work pays tribute to 122 health and care workers who were among the first to have died in the pandemic. The text of this new work consists entirely of their names, and when complete, Never to Forget will be extended to include all names of those health and care workers who have died by the time of its first live performance. Currently, this stands at over 300 names.

To coincide with the anniversary of the founding of the National Health Service, the premiere performance of Never to Forget took place online on July 5, and the recording was also broadcast on BBC Radio 3 that same day.
