PRESS RELEASE Two Richards – One Enchanting Evening
Sunday 11th September sees two supreme musical talents brought together for one captivating evening at Markenfield Hall – Dr Richard Shephard, Musical Director of the York Mystery Plays and Richard Mantel, General Director of Opera North.
Dr Richard Shephard’s Life in Cathedral Music began at an early age and his tall tales and anecdotes from behind the scenes at some of the most important Cathedrals in the country – including our very own York Minster – make for a light-hearted tour of this nation’s choral powerhouses.
Richard Mantle will lead the St Wilfrid’s Occasional Singers who will bring the evening to a close by performing Dr Shephard’s arrangement of Alcuin’s Sequence to St Michael; which he composed to mark the re-dedication of the Chapel at Markenfield back in 2001.
Richard Shephard’s talk – My Life in Cathedral Music – will take place on Sunday 11 September 2016. Refreshments from 7:00pm and the lecture at 7:30pm. Tickets £20 from 01765 692303 or firstname.lastname@example.org
