Judith Weir is one of our most eminent composers whose work ranges very widely, from folk music to opera. She is currently Master of The Queen’s Music – the “poet laureate” of her profession. Writing for national occasions she recently wrote a piece to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice.
Hear Judith talk about the art and craft of her music. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand the creative process that goes into composition, not only the world’s major musicians, but also school choirs and amateur orchestras.
Chapel bookshop and bar will be open all evening.
