A new composition by legendary British composer, Gavin Bryars, inspired by the 12th Century Church of St Germain, Winestead, near Hull. Reflecting on the eerie, flat landscape around Winestead and the Humber Estuary, home to the 17th Century metaphysical poet, Andrew Marvell, Bryars’ music is a meditation on time and place.

The film was made during a live performance of Winestead in the church itself in June 2017. Performed by the Gavin Bryars Ensemble, with tenor John Potter singing words written by Marvell about the area and its unique landscape.

Winestead will be shown at 7, Whitefriargate on the following days:

Friday 30th June 5pm-8pm
Saturday 1st July 10am-7pm
Sunday 2nd July 12noon-7pm

Commisisoned by Opera North with funding from the PRS Foundation for Music New Music Biennial
