Next Saturday 27th October at 6pm sees the first performance of the Penthos Requiem at St Michael’s Church by the St Peter’s Singers. Written by Matthew Oglesby and Hannah Stone, Penthos is conceived as a meditation on conflict and reconciliation in the form of a Requiem. Penthos is a significant contribution to the City’s commemorations for the centenary of the Armistice that ended the Great War (1914-1918), urging communal reflection on the persistence of war in our own times.
Tickets are free but there will be a collection to support refugees in Leeds.
The performance will also include “Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst” (“How desolate lies the city”) by Rudolf Mauersberger and Beethoven’s “Mass in C”
