Talk / Lecture

The Henry Aldrich Choral Edition Project is an ongoing programme of research. The results are being made available through the Christ Church Library website. Scholars and performers will be able to access and download the complete, edited original choral works by Henry Aldrich (Dean of Christ Church, 1689-1710) in modern performing editions.

To launch the project, the Library is hosting a talk by Dr Dean Jobin-Bevans, who has created the performing choral scores of the original cathedral music found in the Library Special Collections. Dr Jobons-Bevans will discuss the choral full-anthems in the broader context of Henry Aldrich's compositional output, spanning almost thirty years.

The talk will conclude with a live performance of "Out of the deep", one of the most popular of the seven full-anthems.

The talk will take place in the Upper Library at Christ Church on 10 October 2016 at 5:15 pm. All welcome. The event is free of charge, but spaces are limited. To book a place, please contact Dr Cristina Neagu, Christ Church Library, Oxford OX1 1DP. Tel.: +44(0)1865 276 265. Email: cristina.neagu@chch.ox.ac.uk
