Subject to Coronavirus restrictions being lifted, we hope to perform a Christmas concert on 27 November 2021.
Ralph Vaughan Williams Fantasia on Christmas Carols;
Josef Rheinberger Star of Bethlehem;
Francesco Manfredini, Pastorale per il santissimo natale;
Alessandro Scarlatti, Cantata pastorale per la nascita di nostro signore
Join us for a joyful musical celebration of Christmas. The programme consists of two uplifting choral compositions, joined by some beautiful seasonal Baroque music by Manfredini and Alessandro Scarlatti. Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on Christmas Carols, for baritone and chorus, weaves together a number of carols into a harmonious sequence, while Rheinberger’s Star of Bethlehem, composed in 1894 for soprano, baritone and chorus is a wonderfully romantic setting of nine linked poems on the Christmas story written by the composer’s wife, Franziska.
The venue for these upcoming concerts will be either Oxford Town Hall or the Sheldonian Theatre.
