LICS French 20th century RGB 730x1024 - French spiritual music from the 20th century

Monday 14 March 1.15pm

Leeds Cathedral

Cookridge St, Leeds LS2 8BE

Poulenc’s Quatre motettes pour un temps de pénitence (Four motets for a time of penitence) provide a surprisingly sensuous and rich opener. Duruflé’s emotionally charged Requiem weaves plainsong melodies into haunting and at times tempestuous moments of musical beauty. You may well leave floating on a couple of inches of clear air!

Don’t miss this chance to take a moment of peace and beauty away from all the noise. Admission is free!
