Come and hear the first performance 

St Michael's, Headingley, Leeds

Conceived as a meditation on conflict and reconciliation in the form of a Requiem, Penthos is a significant contribution to the City's commemorations for the centenary of the Armistice that ended the Great War (1914-1918), urging communal reflection on the persistence of war in our own times.
