Christmas Carols and Messiah

Last night the choir led a Family Carol Singalong in the afternoon for a large number of families with young children – Frosty the Snowman, Have yourself a merry little Christmas, White Christmas, Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Jingle Bells, all featured, as well as a number of choral items which featured again in the evening concert, as well as Thomas Trotter’s transcription of Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride for solo organ, delivered with style by our Organ Elf, Ivan.

Christmas Jumpers for the Family Carol Singalong

Our evening’s concert began with the Christmas sequence from Handel’s Messiah, accompanied by organ, trumpets, and drums, and with four young soloists representing our partners at the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Service, NMPAT. Ending with the Hallelujah Chorus, we were assured of a standing ovation! The second half of the concert featured no fewer than seven of John Rutter’s ever-popular choral carols, as well as six of his carols designed for use by choir and audience. From the boppy sounds of Star Carol and Shepherd’s Pipe Carol, to the intimate beauty of Dormi Jesu and What sweeter music, this was a delightfully varied selection of music.

Our four Messiah soloists representing NMPAT

Due to our schedule of other concerts and commitments, we are unable to hold a formal Christmas concert in 2018, but we will have an informal evening of Carol Singing on Monday 3 December 2018 at the Northampton High School; please keep an eye on the website for full details, and keep the date in your diary!
