Two World Premieres with Composer, Thea Musgrave
Distinguished composer Thea Musgrave, CBE, to visit Wells for two world premieres.
On Sunday 24 June we will welcome Thea Musgrave, CBE, to Wells for the first performance of two brand new pieces of music. Musgrave, who in 2018 is celebrating her 90th birthday, is a Scottish-American considered one of the most respected and exciting contemporary composers in the Western world.
Her Missa Brevis, funded by the Cathedral Commissions scheme (cathedralcommissions.co.uk), will be sung at the 9.45am Cathedral Eucharist.
At 3.00pm Evensong there will be the first performance of Collect for the Birth of John the Baptist – part of the Cranmer Anthem Book.
