Join the Elgar Chorale of Worcester for a concert of seasonal music from the Baroque era in the lovely Church of the Ascension, Malvern Link, Worcs.
With a small instrumental ensemble and in the atmospheric church surroundings, the Elgar Chorale will present a programme of music from the era of Gabrieli and Bach: these two composers stand at the beginning and ending of the Baroque period. You will hear the glorious O Magnum Mysterium and Hodie Christus natus est by Gabrieli, the motet Lobet den Herrn and some of the chorales and preludes for which Bach is so loved as well as music by Schütz, Scheidt and other composers of the era.
A free glass of Glühwein and a mince pie will be available during the interval to help the festival spirit!
Tickets £15 (£5 students) from www.elgarchorale.com on 01684594570 or at the door.
