Our Christmas concert this year takes place on Monday 9 December in Ockley Church at 7.30pm. Our main pieces will be a cantata by the great JS Bach (196, Der Herr denket an uns) and a very festive birthday ode for Queen Mary composed by Henry Purcell, possibly the finest composer so far produced by this country. We will be accompanied by a small group of instrumentalists who will also be playing a concerto by Antonio Vivaldi (of four seasons fame). And of course we will also be performing Christmas carols with opportunities for audience participation (not, however, mandatory!). Tickets are £12.50 and include mulled wine and mince pies.
On Sunday, 15 December, in the afternoon, we have Carols and Cakes. Capel Choral will be singing favourite carols, chosen by the audience in Capel Church with delicious home-baked cakes on offer. Entry is free, (but we will be asking for contributions for cakes and tea).
