Chester Bach Singers: Carols by Candlelight

Part of the Chester Bach Singers 40th Anniversary Season

Add to my Calendar 11-12-2016 19:30 11-12-2016 21:30 36 Chester Bach Singers: Carols by Candlelight Chester Bach Singers: Carols by Candlelight Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without the Chester Bach Singers and their Carols by Candlelight. Featuring the perfect mix of old favourites and new pieces, and of course plenty of opportunity to join in with the singing. As well as traditional audience carols, the concert features newer compositions such as Will Todd’s My Lord has Come, Thomas Hewitt-Jones’ What child is this? and Matthew Owens’ The Holly and the Ivy. The evening will also debut a new setting of Unto us is born a son, by conductor Martin Bussey, composed specially for the choir's 40th Anniversary Season. The concert also focuses on the Christmas music of Peter Warlock – a man who was an expert on the boozier side of Christmas, being well acquainted with all the pubs from London southwards (although Warlock’s naked motorcycling is unlikely to feature in the programme). Warlock’s most famous carol, the beautiful Bethlehem Down is featured alongside the lively Benedicamus Domino as well as his setting of Adam lay ybounden. Retiring collection in aid of Alzheimer’s Society Singing for the Brain. Tickets: £12 adults; £5 students and under 18s. Includes seasonal refreshments. https://chesterbachsingers.yapsody.com/event/index/49157?ref=ebtn St Alban's Church, Chester DD/MM/YYYY
