Wincanton Parish Church (nearest Postcode BA9 9AF)
Saturday 4th December, from 5.00pm to 6.00pm
(Subject to COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS)
We very much hope to see you at our afternoon Christmas Concert on Saturday 4th December at our new venue – the Wincanton Parish Church, Church St. BA9 9AF.
The main work in our short concert will be excerpts from Haydn’s The Seasons, sung in English: Joyful the Liquor Flows, the finale of Autumn; No.40 Let the Wheel move gaily, No.42 A wealthy lord who long had lov’d (both from Winter) and No.46 Then comes the dawn, the final stirring chorus, with a fugue, of Winter.
Festive numbers include O Holy Night (arranged by Adolphe Adam), Somerset Carol (‘traditional’ but harmonised), Gloucestershire Wassail (arranged marvellously by Vaughan Williams), plus other gorgeous carols, lullabies etc.
We hope the new venue and time will enable you to take in the Wincanton Lantern Parade and possibly a cafe or shop in Wincanton High Street, as many are open on Saturday afternoons. The concert will involve less effort on your part than dedicating a whole evening to the concert AND you should find something projected in bright lights on the exterior of the church as part of the Wincanton Town Festival (https://www.facebook.com/WincantonTownFestival/) that will be happening every Saturday 5-9pm from 27th November to 18th December.
Price: £5.00 and £2.50 for under-18s
Tickets are available on the door or from https://ticketsource.co.uk/wincanton-choral-society
