Sir David Willcocks - arranger of many of today's most popular traditional carols Christmas comes to Wimbledon twice this year with two performances of our Christmas Concert for Choir & Audience, such is the popularity of this event.  In the wonderful acoustic that St Paul's Church has to offer, come and hear the choir in full voice with a mix of familiar and new items, and give your voice a good exercise by joining with us in the traditional carols. 
Christmas is a time not only to wrap yourself up in the warmth of the familiar but also to look forward to the future with the new.   Pieces in the programme include some beautiful music written or arranged by contemporary composers.  Examples are John Tavener's stunning The Lamb, Becky McGlade's beautiful version of In the bleak mid-winter, Cecilia McDowell's A Heavenly Song and our own Michael Higgins' take on Away in a manger.  Wrapped around these will be traditional favourites like The Holly & The Ivy, O Come, all ye faithful, Hark! The herald angels sing and Jingle Bells, many of which were arranged by Sir David Willcocks.   There will also be a bit of fun at the end in the final item but you'll have to come along to find out more!   It might just have something to do with the number 12.
