Duccio di Buoninsegna (1255-1319), Nativity

Join Petros Singers for a Christmas concert without a shepherd, Magi, figgy pudding or partridge to be seen or heard!

We celebrate music written for Christmas Day itself, such as the triumphant opening chorus of J. S. Bachís Christmas Oratorio and the splendid polychoral motet Puer Natus in Bethlehem by Michael Praetorius. These showpiece works are placed alongside more intimate fare such as Brucknerís Virga Jesse and Parryís Wolcum Yule while we also include Michael Haydnís rarely heard Viderunt Omnes.

Launching a new initiative to feature music by female composers, we perform recent pieces by Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Cecilia McDowall before Holstís choral fantasy Christmas Day brings our concert to a joyous finale.

There will be the usual mixture of seasonal carols for the audience to join in with and more mince pies than you can shake a Santa hat at. It promises to be a memorable evening and we look forward to seeing you there. Doors open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start.

We are delighted to be joined by organist, Luke Bond. Luke is Assistant Director of Music at St Georgeís Chapel, Windsor Castle, a position he previously held at Truro Cathedral. In great demand throughout the county in recital, Luke was organist at both the Royal Weddings of 2018.
