The Clothworkers Consort of Leeds

‘Gather them in’: The Musical Treasures of W. T. Freemantle

Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall
University of Leeds

A concert celebrating the musical collections of the Sheffield-based organist and antiquarian W. T. Freemantle, now housed in the Special Collections of the University Library and the subject of an exhibition at the Treasures Gallery. Freemantle was a significant collector of the music of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and his circle. This concert features a selection of Mendelssohn’s solo piano works, autograph manuscripts of which Freemantle owned, including a unique early sonata in B flat minor, and the Lied ohne Worte‘Auf einer Gondel’. The Clothworkers Consort of Leeds, directed by Bryan White, will sing Op. 59, Six Songs for Mixed Choir, and Bach’s Kyriefrom BWV 236. They will be joined by Dan Gordon and student soloists from the School of Music.
