Penthos a new requiem on Saturday 27th October 2018
Penthos is an inspirational new musical work - a Requiem - created by two Leeds-based artists. It will receive its first performance on Saturday 27 October at 6.00pm in St Michael's Church, Headingley.
Award-winning poet Hannah Stone and emerging young composer Matthew Oglesby have created a new Requiem called Penthos, a 55-minute work scored for choir and orchestra, with alto and baritone soloists.
The concert forms part of Leeds' centenary commemorations of the Armistice that marked the end of the Great War (1914-1918). The evening also features music by Beethoven & Mauersberger.
St Peter's Singers will be joined by The National Festival Orchestra led by Sally Robinson under the direction of Dr Simon Lindley.
