New Mealor Premiere by Polyphony and Stephen Layton

Grammy award winning conductor, Stephen Layton and multi-award winning choir, Polyphony make their first trip to Aberdeen on Friday, February 5th 2010 and premiere a new choral cycle, ‘Sanctuary Haunts' by Paul Mealor. The new cycle to texts by John Barnes, Peter Davidson and R S Parkes was commissioned by the University of Aberdeen to celebrate 500 years since the consecration of King’s College Chapel. The texts all deal with aspects of religious and spiritual sanctuary and are a refection of the role the chapel has played in its 500-year history.
