Not long to go until our next concert!
Bach's 'Christmas Oratorio' was originally written for performance over several feast days during the Christmas period. While we can't put on a similar scale event, we can bring you excerpts from Parts 1 and 2 of this most festive piece. We'll be joined by Nicholas Bewes (tenor).
We're also performing an unaccompanied motet by Stanford.
We're also performing a section of a cantata by John Dawson, one of our members. The work is based on Longfellow's 'The Song of Hiawatha'. The section we're performing is called 'The Famine' and is scored for 8-part choir and two flutes.
Over on the 'News' page, we've got a short interview with John Dawson in which he talks a little bit about writing the piece and the excerpt from it that we're performing at our concerts on Dec 7th and 8th. Click here to go to this item.
We're proud to premiere a work that has been written for us by someone who has been a member of the Choir for many years.
With 'Carols for all', we invite you join in with some favourite seasonal tunes. If that doesn't get you in the mood, we're also serving mince pies and hot punch.
