Bampton Classical Voices St Beornwald's Day Concert
St Mary's Church, Bampton
A BOY IS BORN (the annual St Beornwald’s day concert) 7.00pm, Wednesday 21 December 2016
Bampton Classical Opera's 8-voice professional a capella ensemble returns to St Mary’s Church, Bampton on 21 December for a concert to celebrate the feast day of Saint Beornwald of Bampton. The programme will include Palestrina’s magnificent Missa Hodie Christus natus est along with seasonal music by Mendelssohn, Schutz, Villette and favourites by 20th-century English composers: Rutter, Taverner, Walton, and The Christ Child by Bernard Rose, who lived in Bampton.
Last year’s debut performance by Bampton Classical Voices delighted audiences with both the sound and the versatility of the programming, and this year’s promises to do the same. The festive performance, directed by tenor Andrew Griffiths, will take place in the beautiful candlelit setting of St Mary’s Church.
Mulled wine will be available in the interval.
