Bolton Parish Church

 In the beautiful candle-lit setting of Bolton Parish Church we present a concert of music to welcome in the Christmas Season. 

The traditional elements include ‘O come, O come Emmanuel’, ‘Joy to the World’, ‘The Holly and the Ivy’, plus Rutter’s much loved ‘Candlelight Carol’ and ‘Laudamus Te’ by Carl Jenkins.

The evening ends with Bob Chilcott’s ‘On Christmas Night’. This charming work for harp, woodwind, organ, choir and narrator is based on the words and music of well-known carols.

The opening work is the stunningly atmospheric ‘Sunrise Mass’ by the young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo (Yay-lo). The choir is accompanied by the Northern Chamber Orchestra in this truly beautiful work, and the Bolton Choral Union is proud and privileged to have the opportunity to perform it.
