Thu 21st Dec - Holy Apostles
This is our own grand end-of-the-year full Christmas programme, performed by candlelight in the stunning Victorian carved stone surroundings of Holy Apostles church. There can be few better ways to start the festive season, for us as well as for you.
Our programme includes firm favourites, carols for you to sing and a few less-well-known pieces that we hope you will want to hear again. The music ranges from new settings by Will Todd and Bob Chilcott, to exciting and entertaining arrangements of Christmas classics, Jingle Bells and the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Tickets cost £10 (free for under-18s), available at the door or online in advance using the PayPal button below. We make the details of all online sales available to the front desk on the night and so you will not need a physical ticket.
Sat 20th Jan - Come and Sing
Following last year's highly successful come-and-sing event, we have decided to repeat the occasion with motets by perhaps the greatest of all composers, J.S.Bach. Why not join us to experience what it is like to sing great music with The Oriel Singers?
This year we will be working on two magnificent motets by J S Bach: Jesu, meine Freude and Singet dem Herrn. These multi-part works are true masterpieces. They contain many different textures and styles: from deeply thoughtful to gloriously joyful; from the simplicity of the chorale to intricate contrapuntal writing.
We will provide a friendly atmosphere, tea and coffee, all the music you need and expert guidance from our conductor, Ben Sawyer. We will rehearse all day and finish with a free concert at 5pm for your friends and family.
