Christmas Concert 2022 flyer

Our 2023 Christmas Concert will be held on Saturday, 16th December at 7.30pm, in St Mary’s Church in Wigton, conducted by our Music Director, Ian Wright, and accompanied on the organ by Ian Hare.

The programme consists of three works, by Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi and Francesco Durante:

  • JS Bach Magnificat

  • Vivaldi Gloria

  • Durante Magnificat

The Magnificat is the praise and thanksgiving given by the Virgin Mary after she learns that she will give birth to Jesus, as written in the Gospel of Luke.

Vivaldi’s Gloria, dating from the early eighteenth century, is now a familiar and popular choice at sacred events, including Christmas.

Ian Wright: Conductor
