Fall–Winter 2014–2015 Choral Music at All Saints

Fall–Winter 2014–2015 Choral Music at All Saints
Sunday, August 24, 2014 James Walker

Here is the choral music for All Saints Coventry Choir and Canterbury Choir through the season of Epiphany plus a few titles into Lent. There is the significant omission of Christmas Eve, as I’m waiting to hear about orchestra funding that will inform those programming decisions. Even in the midst of uncertainty, the angel chorus of “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy” is ringing in my ears.

I’m excited about our repertoire — a delightful musical mixture of intimate friends, new acquaintances and beloved relatives we haven’t visited in a long while.
