Fragments of Black

We are very excited to be taking part in Fragments of Black on 14 September in Kelso. Fragments of Black is part of an amazing project which blends music, video images, audio, and artwork all inspired by the discovery of part of a medieval manuscript in Hawick in 2009, known as the Hawick Missal Fragment. It’s incredible that we are singing music that hasn’t been sung for hundreds of years.

The award-winning composer Michael Nyman has written a new piece incorporating some of these Fragments of music. We shall be giving the first-ever performance at the Fragments of Black event. See the press release for more information.

Visit the Hawick Fragments Project website for more details.
