    28-Sep-2016 Report

    Beautiful seasonal music performed by Candlelight

    Music by:
    Palestrina, Parsons, H. Praetorius, Dering, Scheidt, Byrd, Sweelinck, Weelkes, Cornelius, Warlock, Howells, Poulenc, Edmundson, Mathias, Bennett,
    Will Todd & Ola Gjeilo

    Our New Year concert will be held on the day following the Feast of the Epiphany - that time of year which marks the visit of the Three Wise Men (or Magi, or Kings) to honour the baby Jesus in the stable at Bethlehem.

    Instead of gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, we shall present a fascinatingly rich and varied programme of seasonal music, stretching from the 16th & 17th centuries to the present day – with old favourites to be enjoyed and some exciting new and unfamiliar music to be discovered.

    Music from these shores forms the core of the programme, but music from France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Norway and Canada is also included, thereby making the evening a truly international celebration.

    There will be several opportunities for the audience to join in with the singing, too. For everyone present we hope that this event will truly prove to be A Musical Epiphany.
