Christmas motets and carols. Although some of these may not be so well known, there will be plenty of audience participation!
Music will include a new commission from us to James Dunlop, our Guest Composer, of "O Magnum Mysterium". Our MD Peter has edited a piece from a transcription of a 16th century Flemish organum - read more about this here. We will be including a number of arrangements by David Willcocks, to pay tribute to a man who had such a profound influence on choral music. We will also be singing music from Bob Chilcott, Paul Edwards and Malcolm Williamson. We will round off with some old favourites.
We are performing in St Mary’s Church, Hayling Island on 11 December and repeating the programme the next evening at St Faith's Church, Havant. At Hayling we are raising money for the Church Community Room.
