On the 14th of December 2019 why not join St Albans Bach Choir for two concerts of Christmas music with Embassy Brass. There will be a 3 pm Concert of Traditional Christmas Carols and festive Brass Ensemble pieces for Families with young children. This concert will finish shortly after 4 pm.
Then at 7 pm, there will be another Concert of Traditional Christmas Carols and other seasonal choral music together with Brass Ensemble Pieces and seasonal Readings. Tickets for both are available from the St Albans Cathedral Box Office.
The St Albans Bach Choir is one of the finest large choirs in Hertfordshire. Since their inaugural concert nearly 100 years ago in 1924, they have performed a wide variety of major choral works, including the Baroque masterpieces of Bach and Handel; the gems of the classical era by Mozart and Haydn; the giants of the Romantic choral repertoire by composers like Brahms, Dvořák, Fauré, Mendelssohn and Verdi; and the great works of the twentieth century such as Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast and Britten’s War Requiem.
They will be joined by Embassy Brass who since they formed only in 2007, has built a strong reputation as a truly exciting brass ensemble. All the musicians studied at the UK’s finest Royal Conservatoires of Music, the five members bring unique individual talents to the quintet and each of them regularly performs with some of the world’s finest orchestras, artists and ensembles, from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to Bryn Terfel.
The quintet’s programme includes a wonderful bouquet of English, French, German, Spanish, American and Russian Music. With an extensive collection of works old and new, their vast list of repertoire ranges from prolific arrangements of Bach’s choral settings and Handel’s triumphant Water Music, right through to toe-tapping Beatles hits and Leroy Anderson’s festive Sleigh Ride.
The combination of St Albans Bach Choir and Embassy Brass at St Albans Cathedral will seriously celebrate the glorious sounds of the winter holidays in St Albans and Harpenden.
