    Modern Meets Mediaeval

    2200-2300The Quire, Southwell Minster

    James MacMillan Seinte Mari Moder Milde
    Thomas Adès The Fayrfax Carol, Gefriolsae Me
    Benjamin Britten Sacred and Profane: Eight Medieval Lyrics, Op.91

    For this sequence of choral music, poetry and prose, Old English and Anglo-Saxon texts provide the inspiration for late 20th century choral works by three leading British composers – including a seldom-performed work by Britten from a year before his death. The Minster’s atmospheric mediaeval surroundings contribute to the intensity of the occasion.
