Christmas music for early Advent. We had a lovely evening singing some familiar and some less familiar Christmas work to start advent. Following the sad news of John Tavener’s death it was a lovely opportunity to perform four of his works for choir – which we had already programmed back in October. The works are fine examples of his constant search to record “a music that exists already in the cosmos… the uncreated music of God.” And what better way to find a connection with the spiritual importance of Christmas?
When: Saturday 7th Dcember 2013, 7.30pm
Where: St Matthew’s Church, Chester Road, Stretford, M32 8HF
What: Lovely advent carols, plus some special treats from John Tavener.
