THE MAGIC OF HAYDN

10:30am to 4:00pm

Wellingborough School, NN8 2BX – (Pre-Preparatory School Hall)

The great Papa Haydn, father of the Classical period, wrote choral music which ranged from serious to downright silly.   Spend a day exploring his music with the Wellingborough Singers, and hear more about his missing head, his narrow escape from the knife, and the miracle of the falling chandelier.   Under the expert guidance of Lee Dunleavy, we will sing extracts from his two finest works – The Creation and his Mass dedicated to the Patron Saint of children, as well as the dramatic motet, which – despite how it seems – has nothing to do with Insane and vain Curates.

“Missa Sancti Nicolai”

“The Heavens are Telling” from “The Creation”

“Insanæ et Vanæ Curæ”
