The Ghost Train

By Arnold Ridley

Inspired to write this play in 1923 after becoming stranded overnight at Mangotsfield railway station, it took Arnold Ridley, English actor and playwright, only one week to write The Ghost Train.

The play ran for over a year and sold out in its original London theatrical run. It is now regarded as a modern classic.

The plot revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers, who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country station in the evening.

The Station Master tries to get them to leave the site as he is closing the station for the night. They are all reluctant to leave due to lack of alternative accommodation for several miles, but are warned that if they remain they may be in danger from the supernatural spectre of an old railway carriage train - the ghost of one that was fatally wrecked in the locality several years before.

He tells them that it sometimes haunts the particular line they are now on and can bring death upon those who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story, they still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a night on the station...

Southwell Festival - Late Night Jazz

The spiritual is a unique expression of the faith and suffering of the victims of slavery. The intense emotion of spirituals has permeated much other music and is an essential element in Michael Tippett's oratorio A Child of our Time which is performed on Saturday 25 August. Festival trumpeter Graham South has written new material based on the five spirituals which Tippett used in the oratorio. He will be joined by regular collaborators from the thriving Manchester jazz scene in a group drawn together specifically for the first Festival jazz concert.

JS Bach Mass in B Minor

The Mass in B minor is the summation of its composer's work, the ultimate expression of his faith, and one of the supreme creations of western classical music. This monumental setting of the Ordinary of the Catholic Mass reached its final form towards the end of Bach's life: in it he reworks earlier compositions and draws on many musical styles, old and new.

The Mass is also remarkable in being a Catholic Mass written by a Lutheran composer: in a work of infinite variety Bach combines the glory of the former with the austerity of the latter to create a work of profound spiritual and emotional impact. In this chamber performance on period instruments the solo and chorus parts will be sung by nine members of the Festival Voices and Artisitc Director Marcus Farnsworth.

Organ Recital: Paul Provost

Johann Sebastian Bach!

A towering genius of western music who continues to inspire composers and performers in many genres. He in turn was inspired by his forebears: as a young man he made a 300-mile round trip on foot across north Germany to hear and study the music of the leading composer of his time, Dietrich Buxtehude. The fruits of this famous pilgrimage can be found in the large body of Bach's organ works which, in their scale, range and profundity, provide an inexhaustible treasure trove of technical fascination and musical delight. This first Festival recital on the Minster's fine Quire organ will be given by Rector Chori (Director of Music) Paul Provost. The organ was designed by his predecessor Paul Hale.

Prelude and Fugue in D major BWV 532
Trio super 'Allein Gott in der Hoh sei Ehr' BWV 662

Southwell Music Festival - Chamber Classics: The Czech Connection

In the appeasement crisis of the late 1930s Neville Chamberlain infamously described Czechoslovakia as 'a far away country of which we know nothing'. Happily the wonders of Czech culture are better known to us now, and this concert celebrates it in music by two of the country's greatest composers. Dvorak's easy-going lyricism is in marked contrast to the spirit of the dramatic song cycle The Diary of One who Disappeared - a musical setting of anonymous poems published in a local paper about a farmer who falls for and runs off with a gypsy girl. Janacek's passionate music expresses his feelings for his muse Kamila Stosslova - a much younger woman and another man's wife: in quasi-operatic fashion the cycle captures all the drama of the text.

Southwell Music Festival - Strings in the Quire

The Quire is the perfect setting in which to enjoy the Festival's outstanding string players. Elgar's Serenade is one of his earliest and most popular works, while Bartok's Divertimento conjures the spirit of his Hungarian homeland, especially in its gypsy-inspired tunes and rhythms. Tippett's Lament, based on the famous number from Dido and Aeneas, evokes the music of Tudor and Elizabethan England and is prefaced by Purcell's original. Tippett's brilliant Sonata for Four Horns is the sorbet in this feast of string sonority.

This year's late night sequence of choral music and spoken text reflects the theme of commemoration: Taverner's Song for Athene found a wider audience when performed at the funeral of Princess Diana; A Child's Prayer is an extremely touching tribute piece composed following the slaughter of primary school children at Dunblane. Immortal Bach is a timeless reworking of a simple Bach chorale 'Komm Suber Tod' ('Come, sweet Death') to provide a glimpse of eternity.

The Minster's late night atmosphere and the Festival's outstanding professional choir will combine to provide an occasion of powerful emotional impact.

Southwell Music Festival - Lunchtime Recital

Last year the Festival began a project to support the development of emerging singers and players, and this concert will be a showcase for the youngest members of the 2018 ensemble. The young string players will be some of the most talented undergraduates from leading UK conservatoires while the singers will be graduates of The Sixteen's Genesis programme: this opportunity to sing alongside some of the UK's most experienced consort singers is the result of an initiative with our Patron Harry Chirstophers.

Mendelssohn's sublime Octet was the first work to be played at the inaugural Festival. This performance to mark the Festival's fifth anniversary will be given by four string apprentices and four professional players.

Programme to include:

Felix Mendelssohn Octet in E flat, Op. 20

Part of the Friday Lunchtime in the Cathedral series.

Southwell Music Festival - Quartet for the End of Time

The 31-year-old French composer Olivier Messiaen was captured and imprisoned by the German army in June 1940. Among his fellow prisoners were three other professional musicians - clarinettist Henri Akoka, violinist Jean le Boulaire and cellist Etienne Pasquier. A passage in chapter 10 of the Book of Revelation provides the inspiration for Quatuor pour la fin du temps: "And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever... that there should be time no longer." Messiaen wrote what has become one of his most important works while in prison and it was first performed with the composer at the piano to an audience of about 400 fellow prisoners and guards. The premiere took place outdoors in the rain in January 1941. Messiaen later recalled: "Never was I listened to with such rapt attention and comprehension."

Elgar Cello Concerto and Tippett A Child of Our Time

Following his sell-out solo recital last year, the Festival is proud to present the brilliant Sheku Kanneh-Mason playing the most famous concerto in the cello repertoire. Michael Tippett, a confirmed pacifist who was to become one of Britain's leading composers of the 20th century, began writing A Child of Our Time on 3 September 1939 - the day Britain declared war on Germany. It was a response to fascism and European disunity - an attack on racial prejudice, bigotry and xenophobia whose message is as relevant today as it was nearly 80 years ago. In a work of originality and great beauty, for which the composer wrote both words and music, Tippett uses five spirituals to underline his message: these 19th-century American slave songs transcend time and place to express the two extremes of the human condition - desolation and hope, and remind us of our common humanity.

Southwell Music Festival - For the Fallen: An Armistice Commemoration

"Offer the Ram of Pride instead of him.
But the old man would not so, but slew his son,
And half the seed of Europe, one by one."

The pity, brutality and senselessness of war is summed up in Wilfred Owen's reworking of the bible story of Abraham and Isaac and provides the theme for the first half of this concert. To mark another centenary the second half comprises a narrated performance of Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale: this prototype of 20th-century music-theatre was first performed in 1918. Accompanied by a septet of instruments, it is based on Russian folk tale The Runaway Soldier and the Devil - the parable of a soldier who sells his fiddle to the devil in return for unlimited financial gain.
