Surrey Hills Candlelit Concert
Surrey Hills Chamber Choir, Surrey Hills Singers
Please join us for our atmospheric Candlelit Concert, which will be held in the beautiful setting of St Nicolas Church, Guildford.
Sharing the stage with us will be the wonderful Surrey Hills Singers and, as usual, both choirs have a lovely mix of traditional and contemporary songs to perform.
Starting with a few non-seasonal songs, highlights include the uplifting and rhythmical setting of The Lord’s Prayer in Swahali by Christopher Tin, the fun Pentatonix version of “White Winter Hymnal”, the gorgeous flowing lines of “Days of Beauty” by Gjeilo, the powerful “Priidite” by Rachmaninoff and the sublime “Only in Sleep” by Esenvalds.
We then move on to the seasonal selection of songs, which includes audience carols. Titles you may be familiar with include “The Lamb” by Tavener, the traditional carols “Psalllite Unigenito”, “Gaudete”, “Away in a Manger” and “Past 3 a clock”, “Follow that Star” by Gritton, and many more.
We really appreciate the support of our audience and therefore are happy to put in the extra time to perform the songs from memory in order to engage with you, move you and entertain you. We have chosen songs that will enable us to use the church to its full potential to create different sound effects which makes the experience more interesting too.
