We are very pleased to announce the first concert in our 2017/18 season.
We kick off the year with a FREE Lunchtime concert of Portuguese polyphony in the wonderful acoustic of Holy Name Church on the Oxford Road. Our concert is a reflection on the Requiem Mass and music for All Souls’ day, with movements from the Missa pro Defunctis by Cardoso, Lobo and Magalhaes, and motets by Lopes Morago, de Cristo and John IV of Portugal. There will also be two newly commission pieces by Manchester-based composers Aine Mallon and Dominic Skingle.
We look forward to seeing you there!
