Brit­ten’s work by the Singers

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE TICKET -

A Cer­e­mony of Car­ols by the Dal­garno Singers will be held in Pen­pont Church on Wed­nes­day.

Mu­sic di­rec­tor Rory McLatchie will con­duct Ben­jamin Brit­ten’s work.

He said: “It was orig­i­nally writ­ten for up­per voices but has since been ar­ranged for mixed voices and forms the main theme of our Christ­mas con­cert.

“The au­di­ence will be in for a treat with an in­ter­est­ing pro­gramme of mu­sic – some well known pieces such as Once in Royal David’s City plus an ar­range­ment of three pieces that every­one will know, by Alexan­der L’Es­trange, just to get them in the fes­tive mood.”

The Singers, who re­cently wel­comed some new mem­bers, will end with a piece called A Christ­mas Bless­ing by Ir­ish com­poser Philip Stop­ford.

Tick­ets for the con­cert, which starts at 7.30pm, are avail­able from any of the Singers, or through www. dal­gar­, and are free to stu­dents and ac­com­pa­nied chil­dren.

Fes­tive re­fresh­ments are in­cluded and will be served after the con­cert.
