Events are a large part of life here at the university and we believe that our entertainment, lectures and debates should be open for everyone to enjoy and join in with. We host a wide range of events though out the year so we are sure there is something for everyone. We hope to see you soon!
Make sure to download the latest edition of our events programme and news magazine BG&You for articles, dates for the diary and a way to stay tuned with the university and its activities.
The Secret life of Lutheran Chorales – a concert in the University Chapel on 20th November at 4.30pm.
Agnethe Christensen (voice, Nordic lyres, bell) and Leah Studdard (bray harp, voice, bell)
Martin Luther’s chorale melodies are familiar to many people. They are still sung in Churches and in concert halls, absorbed into living traditions and the classical canon. This concert will give you a chance to know these tunes better. It will include plainsong and polyphony by composers like Guillaume Dufay, Luther’s own versions, and gorgeous Scandinavian folk hymns based on Luther’s tunes but enriched with startling and unexpected chromatics. The audience will be free to join in on refrains or sing some famous hymns with Agnethe and Leah – and you will see the humble hymn in a different light afterwards. Entrance to the concert is free – but you will be invited to make a donation to cover the cost of the event.
