A Londinium Bestiary

Londinium
Andrew Griffiths, conductor

Ola Gjeilo: Unicornis Captivatur
Bernard Hughes: A Medieval Bestiary
Kenneth Leighton: Laudes Animantium

To open its 2018-19 season Londinium presents a thrilling programme of works on the theme of weird and wonderful creatures. Kenneth Leighton's unpublished 'Laudes Animantium' ('Praises of the Creatures') is a superb sequence of poems about animals, from Blake's Lamb and Tyger to Tennyson's Kraken, by way of Edward Lear and others, and finds its composer at the height of his powers. Ola Gjeilo's 'Unicornis Captivatur', based on remarkable fifteenth-century chants, introduces us to the unicorn, pelican, phoenix, hydra and crocodile. Finally, Bernard Hughes' 2011 'A Medieval Bestiary' explores the relationship between medieval man and the animal world. The dramatis personae, taken from a fourteenth-century source, include the manticore, parander, gryphon, monoceros, dragon, panther, and scorpion, and Hughes' music is no less inventive and exhilarating.

Yorkshire Dales English Music Festival

The third Yorkshire Dales English Music Festival builds on the success of previous events with an even more exciting programme. It will begin on Friday 5 October 2018 in the beautiful surroundings of St Andrew's Church, Aysgarth, with a combined concert and film showing. The EMF has collaborated with the Yorkshire Film Archive, commissioning three new films of archive material celebrating life, landscape, transport and work in the Yorkshire Dales; and we have set up a competition for top composition students to write music for these three films: the winning entries will be performed in this opening concert alongside the films that they describe.

Saturday 6 October will see a variety of recitals and concerts in St Andrew's, and on Sunday 7 the festival moves to Bolton Castle for several more concerts, including a violin-and-cello duo recital, performances of Howells' and Lambert's Clavichord, and a concert for violin and narrator, with new works written especially for the occasion by the composers Richard Blackford and Paul Lewis.

Palestrina and the Papal Chapel: a century of music from Rome

Renaissance Singers
Stephen Rice, conductor

Palestrina: Missa Assumpta est Maria

We return to Rome for our autumn concert as we explore the music of Palestrina and the composers of the Papal Chapel from the 16th century. We are delighted to welcome Stephen Rice, Director of the Brabant ensemble as our guest conductor for this concert as we perform music by Palestrina and his contemporaries. The Papal Chapel has inspired composers from all ages and the 16th century was no exception with both singers and composers traveling from Northern Europe as well as other parts of Italy and Spain for the chance to perform there. Palestrina is perhaps the composer who had the most enduring influence on the development of music from this time and his work is often seen as the high-point of Italian Renaissance polyphony. The centrepiece of our concert will be Palestrina’s eight part Missa assumpta est Maria. To complement Palestrina, we will also present music from the papal chapel which is considered to have inspired him. In particular, we will perform works by Guillaume du Fay, Giovanni Maria Nanino and Jean Bonnevin which whilst unfamiliar in the modern era, will have been the key influence on Palestrina’s writing.

Wexford Festival Opera

Since the first 'Festival of Music and the Arts' took place in October 1951, Wexford Festival Opera has grown into one of the world's leading opera festivals. In 2017 Wexford Festival Opera won Best Opera Festival in the World at the 2017 International Opera Awards.

Right from the beginning, the Festival made a name for itself by introducing audiences to unjustly neglected works, many of which have since found a place in the canon. For 66 years the Festival has breathed new life into forgotten masterpieces, establishing a reputation for high-quality productions that, every year, bring thousands of opera-lovers flocking to Wexford from all over the world.
