We are working hard at the weekly rehearsals to master Puccini’s Messa di Gloria and John Rutter’s Carols ready for our December Concert. Our DoM, Lee Dunleavy, has finalised the programme, which should be really enjoyable for us, and our audience. We have had Christmas Concerts since the choir was founded back in 1980 and every time it has been a real pleasure to sing for and with our audience, which joins us for some of the carols, singing lustily!
Here’s the programme: –
Puccini – Messa di Gloria (ed. Linckelmann)
Rutter – Angels’ Carol, Nativity Carol, Shepherd’s Pipe Carol, Star Carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas, What sweeter music, and arrangements of popular carols for choir, audience, organ, and orchestra.
