20th Century Music for Choir and Organ

This event is promoted and run by Yorkshire Bach Choir.
Ben Horden organ
This programme will explore distinctive 20th Century composers who composed uniquely expressive music for choir and organ. Finzi’s vibrant ‘Lo the full final sacrifice’ will contrast with Leigton’s dark, magisterial setting of the ‘Crucifixus’. Also included in this programme will be Howells’ deeply personal and poignant unaccompanied setting of the Requiem text. The programme will also include a performance of Richard Shephard’s ‘Never weather beaten sail’ in tribute to a much missed composer from York who died in February 2021. We finish with music from another son of York with Bairstow’s rousing Blessed City.
Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
