THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Director: Andrew Kirkman The celebrated Wollaton Antiphonal, a glorious musical manuscript of Latin chant from the fifteenth century, has been lovingly and painstakingly conserved over recent years. Its renewed splendour will be celebrated in a concert of English polyphonic music of the time, sung by the internationally renowned Binchois Consort. This richly varied programme will include rare items from the Wollaton Antiphonal Manuscript itself, and compositions directly connected with it, as well as a varied selection of English pre-Reformation styles. The selection of music has been devised to illustrate in sound the period of time from the manuscript’s original making to its subsequent arrival in St Leonard’s Church, Wollaton, in the later fifteenth century. The concert finishes at approximately 9.20pm 6.45pm Pre-concert talk with Andrew Kirkman and Philip Weller LECTURE TUESDAY 4 MAY 4.30-5.45pm DJANOGLY RECITAL HALL ADMISSION FREE PHILIP WELLER, SPEAKER ‘John of Bridlington, two King Henrys, and the ‘Quem malignus spiritus’ mass: Chant, polyphony and the Wollaton Antiphonal’ Members of the public are warmly invited to attend the lecture by Philip Weller in the Department of Music’s weekly colloquia series.
