A Festive Evening of Christmas Choral Music

Under Musical Director Kevin Haighton, we'll be featuring many traditional Christmas favourites including Herbert Howells' exquisite A Spotless Rose, John Rutter's Deck the Hall, and our old friend Andrew Carter's Spanish and Venezuelan Carols. New to our repertoire will be Jim Clements' recent arrangement of Gabriel's Message for the outstanding choral group Voces 8. We'll also be revisiting Eric Whitacre's shimmering and highly evocative Lux Aurumque, which drew great critical acclaim when we first introduced it. We shall finish the evening with many old favourites including Here we Come A-Wassailing and the Ukrainian Bell Carol.

As with all our concerts, we'll be introducing an exciting young solo instrumentalist - full details will be revealed on the night!

We're delighted to welcome back the wonderful Peter Heginbotham who will be accompanying the choir on the organ.

Tickets include a complementary interval glass of wine / orange juice and mince pie.

They are available on the door or via 0114 268 5493.
