Cross Currents – music from both sides of the Atlantic
This year’s autumn Hepton Singers concert will have a strong transatlantic feel to it. The programme includes part-songs by Holst and Vaughan Williams alongside more recent works by Kerry Andrew and Master of the Queen’s music, Judith Weir. There will also be a rare opportunity to hear the striking music of Edmund Rubbra. From across the Pond, the concert will include a modern American classic by Morten Lauridsen, a musical setting of words by Emily Dickinson, and pieces from the Spirituals tradition.
