St Peter’s Singers present a rich and varied programme ranging from the music of Byrd in the sixteenth and Purcell in the seventeenth centuries through the heady romantic glories of S S Wesley [first Organist of the [then] new Parish Church of Leeds from appointment 175 years back in 1842 until his departure for Winchester Cathedral seven years later]. Wesley is followed by Sir Hubert Parry, whose Blest Pair of Sirens was written in 1887 and, finally, Sir Edward Bairstow and his remarkable and vivid setting of Lord, Thou hast been our refuge – a dramatic and passionate work written in 1917 for the Festival of the Sons of the Clergy held that year in St Paul’s Cathedral. From our own time come Dr Philip Moore’s acclaimed settings of Three Prayers of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. City Organist Darius Battiwalla joins St Peter’s Singers for this afternoon’s concert.
