Concert: Advent Expectations (10 December 2016)

Concert poster; details in text

Music from very different contemporary composers for the Advent season. Exciting and challenging, Paul Spicer's Advent Oratorio combines the far reaching lyrics by Tom Wright with familiar Advent Hymns for all to join in. With further familiar treats of seasonal music of Rutter and Willcocks which need little introduction. Our Mendelssohn thread this year continues with movements from the beautiful Christus.
