ENJOY ‘A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION’ WITH THE CHOIR AT SALISBURY CATHEDRAL
Wednesday 11 December 2013
Salisbury Cathedral Choir perform A Christmas Celebration of timeless Christmas music interspersed with familiar Christmas readings and poetry in the Cathedral on Wednesday 11 December at 7.30pm.
Directed by David Halls and accompanied by John Challenger, the choir sings Christmas favourites including In the bleak mid-winter by Darke, For unto us from Handel’s Messiah, and The Shepherd’s Pipe Carol and The twelve days of Christmas by Rutter. Readings include Christmas Bells by Longfellow, A Christmas Prayer from the trenches by Winterbotham, an excerpt from Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee, and Christmas by Betjeman. There’s also the opportunity for the audience to join in singing the great festive congregational carols.
David Halls said “Following the success of last year’s event, I am really looking forward to this. It gives the choir a chance to perform some of the most beautiful pieces from the Christmas choral repertoire and it is always fun hearing choristers and lay vicars doing some of the readings.”
