About this event

On the 27th June 1556 eleven men and two women were burnt at the stake in or near to Stratford in East London. The exact site is unknown but a memorial was erected in the churchyard of St John’s Stratford in 1879. Fire on the Green is a dramatic choral work with music by Jon Cullen and an emotional libretto by Marva Rees. First performed in West Ham church this will be the third performance. The church is connected to the execution through it’s vicar at the time, Revd Thomas Rose, who spoke out against the burnings and was removed from the church and sent to The Tower of London. He was reinstated as vicar of West Ham when Elizabeth I came to the throne. The All Saints Chorus & Orchestra, Newham’s premier ensemble continues to make a name for itself and will, on November 22 perform Verdi’s requiem at Southwark Cathedral when it returns there following their sold out performance of the Mozart Requiem in 2019.
