Christmas Event, Tue 11 Dec 2018

Details

An extremely popular annual concert of seasonal music presented by Keswick Choral Society.

Carols for both choir and audience form part of the programme, and the audience always enthusiastically participates in singing many old favourites. It’s a great way to start off this festive season.

The main work performed by the choir will be Vivaldi’s Gloria. For both choirs and audiences, this is one of the best-loved works in the choral repertoire.

The centenary of the death of Sir Hubert Parry, said to be the favourite composer of the Prince of Wales, will be marked with his setting of the anthem I was glad, which famously was performed at the Coronation in 1952.

Other music will include Love came down at Christmas by the Society’s Director of Music, Ian Hare, which was premiered at Carlisle Cathedral last Christmas; this will be only its second performance.

Refreshments will be available.
