POSTPONED: Book Launch 04.10.20

Due to the latest COVID legislation we regret to inform that this event has now been postponed. Full refunds have been issued and we hope to be able to announce a new date in early 2021.

The Artel Press warmly invites you to the concert and official book launch for our two new titles from the composer Michael Higgins.

Join us on Sunday 4th October 2pm at the Church of Our Lady and St Nicholas, Liverpool for a very special afternoon with the composer, and his ensemble The Swinsung Euphonia.

Higgins will be performing a selection of accompanying works from Baize Bound Beauty, his modern mystery play published by the Artel Press in June 2020, the scores to which have also been published within his epic rain rain, rain folio under our new music publishing venture.

IN KEEN AND QUIVERING RATIO presents 14 works, including includes settings of William Blake, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Rilke, Attar’s Conference of the Birds and Rumi’s Masnavi.

Tickets for the concert are priced £10/£5.
Available from 9am Tuesday 1st Sep via our Eventbrite shop

The composer will also be available after the concert to meet audience members and to sign copies of his books, which shall be available to purchase. Programme and full details are available on our ticketing website here.
