Penthos - first performance

Author: nleedsbeerfest Published: 26th September 2018 20:52

Leeds choir St Peter's Singers is preparing to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War with the world premiere of a new work created in Leeds by two of its own members.

 

Penthos Requiem world premiere performance Saturday 27 October at 6pm 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.
 
Penthos is a significant contribution by St Peter's Singers to the City's Armistice commemorations, providing a creative space where we can come together and reflect. Expressed in hauntingly beautiful poetry and music, the piece is a meditation on that ancient spirit of mourning articulated in the Greek word penthos. It allows us to remember all those who died, and to reflect on the appalling wars that continue to disfigure our world 100 years after ‘the war to end all wars' ended. 
 
This visionary and inspirational piece will receive its first performance at 6.00 pm on 27 October at St. Michael's, Headingley in Leeds, directed by Dr Simon Lindley. The concert also features music by Mauersberger and Beethoven. 
 
You can read more about it, reserve a (free) place at the concert, and contribute to our collection for Leeds charities working with refugees at penthos.uk - do have a look !
