Candlelit Christmas Concert
Saturday 8th December 2018, 7.30pm
Cantamus Singers is a famous community choir based in Thorpe Market. The choir is led by its inspirational Director Philip Adams who is also the director of Music and Organist at Holy Trinity, West Runton.
Philip’s formative musical experiences were centred on the English choral tradition. He studied organ, choral conducting and piano accompaniment at Trinity College of Music, London.
The program will include:
‘The Christmas Story’ by Heinrich Schutz – a dramatic and musical representation of the birth of Christ. It is one of Schutz’s last works and was written in his eightieth year but is as fresh and full of vitality as the works of his youth.
‘I sing the birth’ – Edward Elgar
‘Four Old English Carols’ – Gustav Holst
‘The Five Lesser Joys of Mary’ – Peter Warlock
‘The Manger Throne’ – John Stainer as well as some congregational carols.
