The Rhythm of the Stones
The life of Barbara Hepworth celebrated in music.

To coincide with its major Barbara Hepworth Centenary Exhibition in 2003, Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) appointed Nigel Morgan as Composer in Residence. Music formed an essential part of Hepworth's creative life and YSP acknowledged this with a unique and innovative project. This encompassed two public events and a month long cross-art education project. Three new compositions were commissioned and performed during 2003 in collaborations that included the singer Philippa Reeves, members of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Choir of Wakefield Cathedral. In addition a unique realisation of Priaulx Rainier's Rhythm of the Stones - a work discovered in 2002 by Sophie Bowness, Barbara Hepworth's granddaughter - was given its world premiere by students from City High School, Wakefield and members of the WMDC Music Service.
