The St James’s Singers present their ever-popular Christmas Concert on Saturday 21st December, at 7.30pm, in St Mary’s Church, Warwick.
This year’s reader is Sunny Ormonde. Sunny has been playing the outrageous and raunchy Lilian Bellamy in Radio 4’s The Archers for the past 14 years and has become one of the listeners’ favourite characters! The readings will include some inspiring poetry and prose to capture the spirit of Christmas and to bring a smile to all. A highlight will be Carol Ann Duffy’s wonderful Christmas poem, Wenceslas.
The music will include a blend of familiar and less well-known carols, including several favourites for the audience to join in. The choir’s pieces include Torches, one of the 20th century’s most popular Christmas carols by John Joubert (who died aged 91 at the beginning of this year). In addition, there will be haunting works by Morten Lauridsen, and James McMillan, the wonderful Bogoroditse Devo from Rachmaninov’s Vespers and the lovely Bethlehem Down by Peter Warlock. In short there is something for everyone.
