Meet and Sing: An Afternoon with Composer Alan Bullard
April 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$30 – $40
Church Music Institute invites you to hear and learn from acclaimed British composer Alan Bullard on Sunday, 7 April, at 2pm at Northway Christian Church in Dallas. Alan Bullard, a student of Herbert Howells, is a prolific composer of choral music, both sacred and secular, which has been performed in a wide range of venues in the UK, the USA, and elsewhere. Many of his choral works are published by Oxford University Press, and he is the editor of, and contributor to, The Oxford Book of Flexible Anthems, The Oxford Book of Flexible Carols, and the Oxford Book of Easy Flexible Anthems. His works are recorded on CD by such ensembles as Selwyn College Choir, Kings College Choir, The Sixteen, and are regularly broadcast in the UK and the US.
This afternoon will include much singing of Bullard's music, which is becoming increasingly popular in both the USA and UK, and the opportunity to hear of his life and work as a composer. Participants will sing through some of his music as he talks about how his style fits within the modern British choral context, and he will offer suggestions of music from a range of styles suitable for smaller parish choirs. Participants will keep all the music from the reading sessions.
