The Choral Pilgrimage 2017: The Sixteen
Harry Christophers conductor
Eamonn Dougan associate conductor (for Winchester, Croydon and Blackburn performances)


Poulenc Salve Regina
Palestrina ‘Surge amica mea’, ‘Parce mihi, Domine’ and ‘Surgam et circuibo civitatem’ from Song of Songs
Poulenc Quatre motets pour un temps de penitence
Palestrina Peccantem me quotidie
Palestrina ‘Kyrie’, ‘Gloria’ and ‘Credo’ from Missa L’Homme Arme
Poulenc Un Soir de neige
Palestrina Salve Regina
Poulenc ‘Agnus Dei’ from Mass in G

Poulenc’s choral music was all written after 1936, when the tragic death of a close friend led to a religious epiphany. Its seriousness and intensity contrast with his more frivolous secular style, but these works make perfect companion pieces for the pure counterpoint of the great Renaissance master, Palestrina.

There is a £1.50 transaction fee per booking

Hull Choral Union Chamber Orchestra
Soloist: Joanna Gamble – Alto
Chamber Choir of Hymers College

Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace takes its inspiration from a variety of sources and reflects of the horror and futility of war via texts from different traditions. Commissioned by the Royal Armouries and first performed by the National Youth Choir in 2000, this piece has swiftly grown in popularity with both performers and audiences alike.
Incorporating “The Last Post” into its sequence of movements the work provides a fitting focus to our thoughts in the run up to Remembrance Sunday.

In Feel the Sprit John Rutter works his magic on a range of familiar Spiritual melodies. Scored for soloist, chorus and orchestra – jazzy rhythms and harmonies abound. Registered Charity 1071325

Bach: Christmas Oratorio
This celebrated piece, written for Christmas 1734 35, is a series of cantatas written for each of the six most important days of Christmas, starting on Christmas Eve and ending at Epiphany.
The first three, written for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and St Stephen’s Day, and the last, written for the Feast of the Epiphany, Twelfth Night, are being performed. These four cantatas are typical of the whole work, presenting the joy, the glory and the mystery of Christmas with arias of great tenderness, and brilliance, and equally varied choruses. The orchestral writing is remarkably colourful, and there are quite wonderful solos for strings, wind and brass.

The Jazz Ticket @ Hull Truck Theatre
Nov 18 all-day
The Jazz Ticket – 100th Birthday of Jazz Legends @ Hull Truck Theatre
Nov 18 all-day

Hull schools will play host to celebrations of six legendary ‘Giants of Jazz’ all born 100 years ago in 1917. A gala concert performed by the sensational Nu Civilisation Orchestra led by award-winning pianist and composer, Peter Edwards, will also include young musicians from Hull schools as part of ‘The Jazz Ticket’.


The event will take place at Hull Truck Theatre on 18 November 2017 and will see over 50 musicians take to the stage to mark 100 years since the birth of Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Mongo Santamaria, Thelonious Monk, Tadd Dameron and Buddy Rich. 


Produced by Tomorrow’s Warriors, The Jazz Ticket is an ambitious and inspirational nationwide music education and concert touring programme which gives young musicians aged 11-18 the opportunity to work with leading jazz professionals and develop their performance and improvisation skills, whilst exploring the history of the genre and six of its pioneering artists born 100 years ago.


Peter Edwards is the musical director for the Nu Civilisation Orchestra and is an alumni of the Tomorrow’s Warriors young artist development programme and has established a growing reputation and following as a pianist, bandleader, composer, arranger and teacher. Peter said “The reason why we’re doing this is to help inspire young people. Many of the people who are in the Nu Civilisation orchestra came through the young artist development programmes so a lot of us were in the situation that the young musicians are in.  Hopefully this will show them that there’s actually a pathway into becoming an orchestral member.”


 In celebration of these pioneering musical icons, Nu Civilisation Orchestra will present a spectacular event, featuring some of the finest jazz musicians of the moment,  playing pieces by the Jazz greats as well as a new commission from Turner Sims, ‘A Journey with the Giants of Jazz’ by Peter Edwards generously supported by PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Biennial.


Tomorrow’s Warriors’ music leaders will work with young musicians from  exploring the music of the Jazz Greats to prepare for their performance as the opening act for the Nu Civilisation Orchestra.


Fish Krish, special projects manager at Tomorrow’s Warriors, says “We aim to inspire young people and give them the opportunity to explore jazz and their own creativity whilst celebrating these six extraordinary Jazz artists who have had such a huge and lasting impact on the genre. We hope The Jazz Ticket will create a new generation of musicians and audiences to enjoy and value Jazz.”


“We are now over half way through The Jazz Ticket programme and it has been an absolute pleasure to see the commitment, talent and sheer passion of the young participants who get to share the stage with current legends of the jazz scene – an experience to treasure! added Fish.


The Jazz Ticket is suitable for jazz fans of all ages (recommended 8+).  Tickets are £12.50 each and £6 for students and under 26 year olds. Tickets can be booked via or call the Box Office on 01482 323638
