Heptonstall, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire HX7 7NS
The Hepton Singers continue our love affair with the work of contemporary Scottish composer James MacMillan by performing his Missa Brevis at our concerts in November. At our first rehearsal we all agreed that it is an extraordinary and stunning piece, and we are very much looking forward to singing it. James MacMillan wrote this music when he was only 17 but his inherent musicality, the clarity of his writing and the depth of his faith bring an unusual maturity to the work. We shall accompany it with motets and other sacred pieces by James MacMillan himself, the Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and Antonio Lotti, in what promises to be a contemplative and inspirational concert, not to be missed.
PLEASE NOTE THE START TIME OF 4PM.
