Created by Matthew Oglesby and Hannah Stone for the centenary commemorations of the Armistice that brought an end to the Great War, Penthos fuses the ancient spirituality and sounds of the Middle East
with those originating nearer to home in the form of a Requiem, providing an opportunity to reflect on the Great War and the making of the peace that followed it.
The concert also includes Rudolph Mauersberger's 'Wie liegt die Stadt so wüst', composed in the aftermath of the 1945 bombing of Dresden and well-known in Germany but rarely sung in the UK, and Beethoven's serene Mass in C.
Matthew Oglesby and Hannah Stone are members of St Peter's Singers and it is with immense pride that we present the first performance of this visionary work.
