Holy Trinity Church, Minchinhampton

Saturday 17 October 2015

Minchinhampton Church

Stephen Gowland 

Minchinhampton is one of 43 places where altars were dedicated in 1315. To mark this 700th anniversary we performed music from 1315, 1415, 1515 and so on, ending with a setting of Jubilate Deo, which we had commissioned from Stephen Gowland (left).
Instruments appropriate to each period were featured, including cornetts, natural trumpets, sackbuts, bagpipe, percussion and modern brass instruments, led by Adrian Woodward, Musical Director of Shakespeare’s Globe on the South Bank.
