AS midsummer draws nearer, Pinsuti have planned a dreamtime double bill of magical madrigals and summer music, featuring choral works from four centuries: “Such stuff as dreams….”

Pinsuti will be singing in Airton, at the Meeting House BD23 4AE, on Saturday 22nd June 7.30 pm, and then at St Peter’s Church, Addingham, LS29 0QS on Sunday July 7th at 3pm.

The concerts will include a fabulous selection of Eric Whitacre’s choral works, ranging from the sacred “Lux Aurumque”, his “Alleluia” and “Sleep” to the quite unique “Leonardo dreams of his Flying Machine”.

Choir member Kate Graham greatly enjoys Whitacre’s music: “Whitacre’s music is both utterly modern and wonderfully tuneful, a delight to the ear, and a joy to sing.”

The choir will revisit Vaughan Williams’ beautiful Three Shakespeare Songs, and introduce works by Ešenvalds, Sandström and Mäntyjärvi. They are delighted to include Paul Mealor’s quartet of songs “Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal”. Lovers of early music will not be disappointed, with sacred Tudor works by Gibbons and Byrd, and a range of madrigals around the theme of dreams.

Finally, no summer concert would be complete without some old favourites such as “Blue Moon” and “Over the Rainbow”.

Pinsuti hope you will come and join them for one or both of these concerts: both are in delightful settings in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, with refreshments at the interval. Tickets for each are £10, under 16s free. Tickets available on the door or in advance through Eventbrite (search Such stuff as Dreams are made of…).
