An Advent Feast from Cantilena

Christmas comes to St Mary's

Saturday 11th December 2010 sees Cantilena Choir returning to St Mary’s Church for a feast of advent music.

Also returning to the choir as its new Musical Director is Tony Bevan. Tony was Musical Director between 1988 and 2000. He’s put together an exciting programme of music for Advent, featuring Bach’s famous Cantata “Wachet Auf” - “Sleepers Awake”. The programme also includes a beautiful Magnificat by Pergolesi, recalling the Visitation of the Angel Gabriel to Mary. There will also be advent carols and readings to put everyone in the mood.

And to help the party go with a swing, there'll be mulled wine and mine pies during the interval.

We welcome the Cantilena Orchestra and soloists Soprano Rachel Bevan, Tenor Edward Ross and Bass Robert Clark.

We are supporting St Magaret's Hospice as part of this event.
