About the Event

This not-to-be-missed Christmas Concert will bring together both well known Christmas classics, and lesser known festive choral music.

The programme will include two versions of O magnum mysterium, one by Poulenc and the other by the contemporary American composer Morten Lauridsen. We will also perform two versions of The three kings: one in the well-known setting by Cornelius which we will sing in the original German, and the other by contemporary British composer Johnathan Dove.

We will also be invited our audience to join us in some congregational carols, so please arrive in good voice!
