Wessex Consort Sings Thomas Hardy Poems at His Family Church Near Dorchester

[Updated Tuesday 17 April 2018 – Seen and Heard International is sad to report the passing of Graham Stansfield  on Friday 13 April, following a long struggle against cancer, an illness he steadfastly refused to make concessions to. He worked consistently throughout lengthy and often debilitating periods of treatment. Indeed, just six days before he had introduced his latest work – new settings of poems by his beloved Thomas Hardy – at a concert in St Michael’s Stinsford, the Hardy family church, given by the Wessex Consort ensemble he co-founded with conductor Andrew King.]
