Medieval music workshop and carol concert, St Mary’s Church, Bishophill Junior, December 8

FOR the first time since they were originally written down, a collection of little-known medieval Christmas lyrics have been set to music by composer Stef Conner, especially for a historically-inspired musical event in York’s oldest surviving church.

Tomorrow’s event has been masterminded by York choir leader, singer and musicologist Lisa J Coates and Royal Philharmonic Society Prize-winning composer Stef Conner, who has a Ph.D in music from the University of York as well as a love of north east folk traditions, in which she became immersed while performing with the folk group The Unthanks.
