Subject: [SCoFFnews] Stanchester Quire's Christmas Concerts

Hi all,
Just thought I'd pass on this info...                                                               


Hallelujah! Christmas Carols with the Stanchester Quire

Folk South West is delighted to announce the Stanchester Quire’s 2007 Christmas concert series - “Hallelujah!” and the premiere of their new carol “Shepherds In Their Field Abiding”. Taking place across the area to the south of Yeovil, these concerts are certain to entertain all the family and create a little festive cheer!

Director of Folk South West and musical director of the Quire, Eddie Upton says “The South West of England has a wealth of wonderful Christmas music which is rarely sung and therefore little known. Our Christmas concerts this year feature some really exciting music from the region, filled with glorious harmonies and stirring rhythms. The highlight of the concerts will be the unveiling of the Stanchester Quire’s own carol “Shepherds in Their Field Abiding” specially commissioned from the great folk musician and composer John Kirkpatrick. This is a rousing new song which will amaze everyone who hears it.”

The Quire sing songs that originate from the South West region but the new carol is something completely different to their usual repertoire and all the members of the Quire are really looking forward to performing the new piece. The youngest member of the Quire, Ellen Robotham says, “This piece is a new challenge for the Quire but one that we are enjoying. The music is so vibrant and the play on words makes it completely irresistible so you can’t help but love it!”

The concerts will be fun for all and are guaranteed to get even the most reluctant into the Christmas spirit - Hallelujah!!!

December 6th - Martock Parish Church 7:30pm
