MUSIC AT MINCH
Christmas concert Holy Trinity Church, Minchinhampton.
Thursday 20 December 2018 at 7.30 p.m.
The Cappella Singers' Christmas concert this year begins with the Fantasia on Christmas Carols by Ralph Vaughan Williams, in which our soloist will be Nicholas Perfect. A choral gem which is rarely performed is the charming Mass at the Crib by George Malcolm, who achieved fame as a harpsichordist, and was choirmaster at Westminster Cathedral.
Also on the programme is In silbernen Wassergrund by the Swiss composer Carl Rütti. There are, as always, unusual traditional carols, and some favourites, including A Spotless Rose by Herbert Howells.
For this concert we are joined by an old friend of the choir, Mark Blatchly, and percussionist Mark Coldrick.
