St Peter's Singers

Programme Note

Leeds-based St Peter’s Singers are no strangers to innovation, and on Sunday 3 July (8.00pm) they present a programme at St Michael’s, Headingley, Leeds (LS6 3AW) including no fewer than six works written by or for members of the choir.

Entitled Music of the Mystics, the recital will include settings by well-known composers such as Vaughan Williams, Finzi [1901-1956], Leighton, Barber, Parry and Wood [1866-1926]of poets such as George Herbert, William Blake, Robert Southwell, Richard Crashaw and Gerald Manley Hopkins.

But it will also comprise the first performance of a work created by two choir members, Hannah Stone (poet) and Matthew Oglesby (composer) along with first performances of works written by Philip Moore and David Hill for conductor Dr Simon Lindley’s 65th birthday, as well as a work by choir member Alasdair Jamieson and two other works by Matthew Oglesby.

St Peter’s Singers will be directed Dr Simon Lindley and accompanied by David Houlder (organ).
