After our last concert was cancelled, we’re now really happy to say that we are enjoying rehearsing together again and are glad to announce our upcoming Christmas concert: BAA-lleluia! which will take place on Friday evening 27th November at 7.30 pm in St Georges Presbyterian Church in Takapuna. (Doors will open at 7:00pm)
As hinted in the title, our programme will include a few songs on the sheep and shepherd theme, with the likes of “Shepherd’s Pipe Carol” by John Rutter, “L’Adieu des bergers à la Sainte Famille” from Hector Berlioz, “O leave your sheep” arranged by Kenneth Leighton. It will also include many other pieces to worsheep the Lord and celebrate the birth of the Good Shepherd with works from Vaughan Williams, Handel, Wishart, Brahms and even a special arrangement of “O Little Town of Bethlehem” by one of our own tenors, Ken Leech.
The concert will be conducted by Nicholas Forbes with Organ accompaniment by Michael Stoddart. Our two wonderful scholars, Miles and Josh, will also be raising the Baa, so it promises to be a night to remember.
So we are looking forward to it all going wool and that you will all flock to celebrate Christmas as we embrace the Joy of singing together again.
