CHAMBER choir Pinsuti will be performing an 'uplifting collection of celebratory and reflective music' at its summer concert at Christ Church, Skipton on Saturday, July 6.

The evening concert, Alleluia!, will see the singers perform a capella - or in the style of the chapel - but with some organ and brass accompaniment.

The programme of sacred and secular music ranges from the 17th century to contemporary composers. Earlier works include Gibbons’ Great King of Gods, written for the only return visit of James I to Scotland in 1617; Handel’s well-known coronation anthem Zadok the Priest; richly-woven sacred motets by Bruckner and Stanford, and Bairstow’s dramatic anthem Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.

Modern pieces are mainly reflective and a cappella: John Tavener’s Song for Athene - Alleluia. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest'; settings of Alleluia by Stephen Paulus and Eric Whitacre; and Frank Ticheli’s Earth Song, which is a cry for peace through the blessing of music.

The concert is at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12 on the door, or via Eventbrite (booking fee applies). Free entry to under 18s.
