Seminar 7:
A Festival of Hymns
in the English Tradition

This Sunday afternoon will be a celebration of the glorious Hymns of the English Tradition — otherwise known as 'Desert Island Hymns'.

The greatest hymns are not only the result of fabulous music coupled with stirring poetry. They are the ones which reside close to our hearts. Some we cannot get out of our minds long after mass is finished. Join us on the 20th of June to hear the results of a survey conducted at St Peter's and to spend an afternoon with hymns and stories to help us reflect more deeply on these gems we sing each Sunday.

Date Sunday 20 June
Time 2.30 pm – 4.30 pm
Venue St Peter's, Eastern Hill
Cost $15 (concession: $12)
Conductor Linda Kent
Linda is a harpsichordist and organist based at the University of Melbourne. She tours regularly as a continuo player with professional orchestras such as the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Branbenburg Orchestra. She also accompanies recitals of early music, and has made several fine recordings with artists such as Genevieve Lacy (recorder), Elizabeth Wallfisch (baroque violin) and Rosanne Hunt (baroque cello).
