Leeds Philharmonic Chorus

Our Choir Master 1961-75. Rest in PeaceSt Peter’s Singers honour the memory this Saturday of Dr Donald Hunt (1930-2018, Conductor of Halifax Choral Society 1957-88) with a performance of his stunning Hymnus Paschalis in a concert at Halifax Minster. Based on a fragment of plainchant he discovered by chance, it is an exciting and dramatic account of the great traditional Easter Hymn, with all the bells!
The programme also includes movements from Matthew Oglesby's brilliant new Requiem Penthos, along with Vaughan Williams‘ Five Mystical Songs and the Dona nobis pacem.

St Peter’s Singers, directed by Dr Simon Lindley. Julie Kilburn (soprano) , Quentin Brown (baritone). David Houlder (organ)
Saturday 6 July 7.30pm, Halifax Minster. Tickets (£10) online or at the door.

On Saturday in Leeds I heard a wonderful performance of his masterpiece, The Dream of Gerontius. Superb playing from @the_halle @leedsphil @LFChorus @SPSLeeds . Captivating from start to finish. https://t.co/saPty9quBf

It’s been an amazing two days assisting on Gerontius with @the_halle @LFChorus @leedsphil @SPSLeeds and the stunning soloists. Now back in London, it’s just gone 8am and I’m about to start work on this..... #morecoffee #toomanynotes


The closing concert of @LeedsConcerts Orchestral Season on Saturday had it all - an excellent orchestra, top soloists, a renowned conductor, amazing choral singers, the magnificent organ and a full audience. What a way to close the 2018/19 season!


Thank you for a fine #DreamofGerontius tonight @LeedsTownHall @the_halle @leedsphil @spconnolly @BelCantoBhoy @DavidSoar76 @SPSLeeds @LFChorus @LeedsConcerts
