Chamber choir's gem of a Christmas concert

Where: St Peter's Church, Winchcombe

When: Saturday, December 15, 7.30pm

An amateur chamber choir is bringing a programme of Christmas music to the glorious setting of St Peter's Church, Winchcombe, on Saturday evening.

Oxford-based Commotio was founded in 1999 and performs contemporary choral music primarily from the 20th and 21st centuries showcasing works by younger or lesser-known composers.

The choir is particularly recognised for its fine tuning, attention to detail and challenging repertoire. The name Commotio derives from the Latin for movement/excitement.

Commotio's CD, A Rose in the Middle of Winter, got to number one in the Specialist Classical Charts in 2013, and another, All Good Things, reached number 11 in the Jazz Charts in 2017.

Under director Matthew Berry, Saturday's programme will include Richard Allain: The Magi's Gifts; Richard Rodney Bennett: Lullaby Baby; Herbert Howells: Walking in the Snow and Richard Lloyd: Love Came Down at Christmas.

Tickets cost £12 (£10 concessions) and are available from the Coventry Building Society on Abbey Terrace, Winchcombe, or online at www.commotio.org/store/p26/19%3A30%2C_15th_December_2018.html
