Music and Readings for Advent with Refugium Chamber Choir

Sunday November 27th at 7pm in Bosbury Church HR8 1QT on the B4220

And breathe…..

Four weeks before Christmas the scene is often one of frantic preparations, endless lists, excited children, planning festive cooking. For some it may be a time of loneliness, or worry about what the winter will bring.

Here is a moment to step aside from all the busy-ness, to step into the peace and beauty of Bosbury Church. In the Stillness is a programme of music and readings for the Advent season. The music, which illustrates biblical and non-biblical readings,  ranges from the 16th century to the present day, including choral gems by Sweelinck, Mendelssohn, Hassler, MacMillan, Elizabeth Poston, Britten and Sally Beamish.

Refugium Chamber Choir was formed in the wake of lockdown by a group of friends who had sung together in several different acclaimed choirs in Herefordshire, Cardiff and beyond. The choir has a shared love of singing, but also coffee, cake, curry, cats and cricket! They sing without a conductor and have established a reputation for an impressive blend of individual voices in an eclectic range of music.

This event is free to attend. There will be a retiring collection in aid of church funds and the Ledbury Food Bank. Interval drinks and seasonal nibbles will be served, with donations invited.
