Message from Jonathan, our Director of Music
“Here are some of the highlights of our Michaelmas Term:
29th September: The first Three Choirs Evensong, with All Saints Fulham Choir hosting both the choirs of St Luke’s Chelsea and St Martin-in-the-Fields.
6 October: Harvest Festival. We’ll perform the whole of the Prayers and Dances of Praise from Africa, from which we did the first movement (O you big things praise the Lord) last year. It’s an ace piece, and comes with interludes for marimba duet, which is pretty groovy.
20 October: Workshop and Evensong with David Hill. It’s really something of a coup to have David work with us – he’s the former director of music at Westminster and Winchester Cathedrals, St John’s College, Cambridge, and currently directs the Bach Choir and the BBC Singers, so he’s pretty hot stuff. Definitely not to be missed.
30 November: Come-and-sing Messiah. Martin Neary has very kindly offered to lead this.
7 December: The Annual Badger Singers Christmas Carol Concert – put it in your diary now and if you don’t yet have a Christmas jumper, then think about getting one now, before the rush.
1 and 15 December: Advent Carol Service and Nine Lessons and Carols. More amazing carols – The Nine Lessons is really the centerpiece of the choral year – a great chance to show ourselves off at our very best.
24 December: MIDNIGHT MASS – it’s a fabulous service
