World Premiere of Spells, Remedies and Potions for 13 sopranos, by Kantos

Activity: Other

Description

Spells, Remedies and Potions for 13 sopranos (c.15 minutes). Premiere: KANTOS chamber choir, Ellie Slorach (conductor), Pendle Heritage Centre (32-10-18). This sets my own text, which I have freely adapted from the Malleus Maleficarum of 1487 by Heinrich Kramar and James Sprenger (in the English translation by the Reverend Montague Summers of 1928). It is a collaboration between myself, KANTOS and the Pendle Heritage Centre, around the Pendle Witch Trials of 1612.

Further performances in 2019: Pendle Heritage Centre on 31 October (Halloween), at Lancaster Castle (where the trials originally took place) on 8 November, and at the Anthony Burgess Centre in Manchester on 15 November.
