Britten’s work by the Singers
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. dalgarnosingers.co.uk, and are free to students and accompanied children.
Festive refreshments are included and will be served after the concert.
