In this concert BCU offers a programme of choral music centred on a Christmas theme

Bach                          Wachet Auf (Sleepers Wake)
One of Bach's many famous church cantanas which he performed only once in Leipzig in November 1731.
Charpentier               Messe de Minuit pour Noël
Charpentier, a very famous and prolific French composer, enjoyed writing music for the celebration of Christmas. He wrote this mass based on popular carols (noëls) around 1690.
Vaughan Williams     Fantasia on Christmas Carols
This popular work, first performed in 1912, contains English music such as folk carols, The Truth from Above, and On Christmas Night All Christians Sing, (the Sussex Carol), with brief orchestral excerpts from other carols, such as The First Nowell.
Pachelbel Canon
This very popular work for three violins and bass continuo will be played by members of the NCO.

Tickets are priced at £10 with the usual £1 concessions. Children are free.
