The Leeds-based chamber choir St Peter’s Singers make a return visit to the beautiful Balearic island of Mallorca from 26th to 29th October 2013. This will be the choir’s fourth overseas tour, following acclaimed trips to Romania in November 2007, Mallorca in October 2009 and Brittany in May 2011. The choir will be directed by Alan Horsey and accompanied by its renowned organist David Houlder, who will also perform organ solos in each of the recitals.

The Singers are privileged and deeply honoured to have been invited back to the beautiful Parish Church of St John the Baptist in Muro - where they gave their first recital of the 2009 Tour - and to Palma’s magnificent Basilica de Sant Francesc, which will be the venue for the concluding recital of the 2013 Tour.

The choir and its supporters will again be staying in the lovely coastal resort of Puerto Pollença in the north of the island. This provides an ideal base for the new recital venues – the Parish Churches of Campanet (Eglesia San Miquel) and Artà (Eglesia Transfiguracio del Senyor) – as well as for Muro.

Each hour-long recital will comprise a panorama of sacred choral music from British and Continental traditions spanning over 500 years. Particular features of the 2013 programmes include celebration of the birth centenary of Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) as well as works by composers with particular associations with Leeds Minster, where the Singers are based.
