Music group

Hyde Abbey was a focus for church music – notably Gregorian Chant – during the Middle Ages so we are delighted, in that same spirit, to bring back a variety of music to St. Bartholomew’s during the Autumn to reconnect with the Abbey Church’s musical roots.

King Alfred Weekend 2015

datePosted on 12:54, September 27th, 2015 by Site admin

King Alfred statue, WinchesterHyde900 presents a weekend of events around the theme of Alfred the Great, jointly organised by Hyde900 and St Bartholomew’s Church.

Ruler of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex from AD871 to 899, Alfred subdued the invading Vikings and brought about a new era of learning, culture and law that built the foundations of our modern society. Having been buried in the New Minster in central Winchester for over 200 years, his remains were transferred to the newly-built Hyde Abbey in AD1110. October 26th 2015 marks the 1116th anniversary of his death.

Since 2012, Hyde900 has organised an annual weekend of events on subjects relating to King Alfred and Hyde.

datePosted on 08:40, July 2nd, 2014 by Site admin

Welcome to the fifth anniversary Michaelmas Music programme in which we celebrate the musical tradition of Hyde Abbey in the acoustic gem of the church of St. Bartholomew, Hyde.

Our eclectic programme takes you through the ages from the early music of Vox Humana and Index Cantorum – appropriate to the history of Hyde Abbey – right up to date with the fabulous contemporary virtuoso guitarist Jad Azkoul. En route we welcome back Hyde900’s own choir and our regular student participation from the mixed choirs of the University of Winchester. We also renew our convention of featuring, in our inaugural concert, two young Winchester musicians Jenny Whitby (flute) and Max McCulloch (violin) at the start of their careers.

Michaelmas Music provides an opportunity for the Winchester community to enjoy high quality music performed in a unique local setting. Come along and enjoy the sound.
