“Victorian Christmas” at Holy Cross Church, Ashton Keynes

We are very privileged to have been invited to perform at the Ashton Keynes Village Choir's Christmas Concert at Holy Cross Church on 10th December.

The evening will have a “Victorian” theme and also a bit of "Georgian"! We plan to perform Tsmidao and "Down to the River to Pray", with some seasonally themed variations on the usual lyrics so pay attention!

The choir will be singing a number of traditional carols to tunes which were popular during Queen Victoria’s reign, and also performing music which, although not necessarily written in the 19th century, would have been popular with audiences of that time. The programme includes Zadok the Priest and Panis Angelicus (which you may remember from the TV drama “The Choir”) plus loads of favourite Christmas songs. They will also bring you seasonal thoughts and stories with a selection a readings by local ‘celebrities’.

Thanks to Heather Milnes their Musical Director for allowing us to sneak in another chance to perform acts of pointless grandeur in public, this time with (jingle) bells on!
