Festival Details - "Music of Praise | Petersfield Musical Festival"...

Swedish composer Dag Wirén's Serenade for Strings is his most well known and popular work, and provides a lively contrast to two works, by living composers, belonging in the great British choral tradition.

In Mirror of Perfection, "Blackford takes the delightful, little-known poetry of St Francis of Assisi and builds a powerful cantata of great lyrical beauty..." [Stephen Pritchard, Observer]

Andrew Carter's Benedicite is a work for choir, children's choir and orchestra that takes its text from the Book of Common Prayer. For our concert, the Petersfield Chorus and Southern Pro Musica will be joined by the chapel choir of Highfield School.

Paul Spicer is one of today’s most distinguished choral conductors and is in great demand for his inspirational choral workshops. He conducts the Birmingham Bach Choir, is founder-director of the acclaimed Finzi Singers, and is Professor of Choral Conducting at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. He has been Resident Conductor at Petersfield Musical Festival since 2005.

The 2020 Petersfield Musical Festival runs from 13 to 21 March, with an exciting programme of concerts, and a wide range of performers and music - including choral, orchestral, opera, solo instrumental, chamber music and a special screening of a Chaplin film, with live music accompaniment. We also celebrate 250 years since the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven.
