East Beds Chamber Choir: Saint Saens’ Christmas Oratorio, Benjamin Britten Rejoice in the Lamb
East Beds Chamber Choir Christmas concert will feature the delightful, but not very well-known, Christmas Oratorio by Saint Saens. It is a varied piece with solo, ensemble and choral sections, accompanied by organ, string quartet & keyboard harp.
In addition, the choir will perform Benjamin Britten’s short choral work, Rejoice in the Lamb, as well as a piece by Arensky and a Christmas favourite or two.
Please arrive in time for a prompt start to enjoy the short, spine-tingling piece of music by Norwegan composer Gjeilo.
Conductor: David Beer, Accompanied by: Element String Quartet, Madalina Rusu (keyboard harp), Justin Waters organ.
