Parry Centenary Concert
Durham University Orchestral Society, Choral Society, and Chamber join forces together with Durham Cathedral Choristers and Durham County Youth Choir for an incredible celebration of the life and music of C H Parry.
2018 sees the centenary of the death of C Hubert H Parry, arguably one of Britain’s most iconic and influential composers. Enjoy a concert presenting some of his best known works including ‘I Was Glad’, ‘Jerusalem’, and ‘Blest Pair of Sirens’.
Alongside this well-known repertoire, the musicians will present Parry’s engaging cantata ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’, a setting of Robert Browning’s famous poem, first performed in Norwich in 1905 and rarely heard in England since. This and the ‘Idyll’ from the composer’s Suite Moderne edited by the scholar and Parry biographer, Professor Jeremy Dibble, (Music Department, Durham University) will take pride of place in a concert not to be missed!
