Change of date for C&O new music premiere
22 July 2014
The premiere of Gareth Wilson's 'Prologue', in partnership with Merton College Oxford, will now take place on Thursday 30 October at Evensong and not on 12 October as previously advertised.
Choir & Organ’s New Music series is a group of specially commissioned pieces written by some of the most talented young composers around.
In every issue of Choir & Organ magazine, you’ll find a profile of the composer providing an insight into the new work; the scores, licensed for six months, can be download from www.choirandorgan.com.
In 2014, our New Music partner is Merton College, Oxford. The Choir of Merton College will give the premieres of our three choral commissions and the winning entry in the Choir & Organ 2014 Composition Competition. All four choral pieces will be included in the Merton Choirbook, being compiled to celebrate the College’s 750th anniversary in 2014. The two organ compositions will be premiered on the new Dobson organ in the College Chapel.
