THE CHRISTMAS STORY
Saturday 23 December, 7.30pm, St Nicholas Church Nave, Grosmont.
Kitchen Singers – The Christmas Story by Heinrich Schütz told in song for voices and instruments. This was probably first performed in the Court Chapel in Dresden on Christmas Day 1660. It is a strange piece – not published in its entirety but in parts, allowing the performers to adapt the content and the performers to what was available to them on the day. So tonight we shall hear it with strings, recorder and continuo – and on another occasion perhaps with a much bigger band. The Evangelist tells the story in what was for Germany a new and austere style, and the choir surrounds his narrative with what would have been recognised as appropriate Christmas music. In the second part of the evening we shall join in some of the Carols that we love most with a great opportunity for audience enhancement! You will be very welcome – and we are sure you will enjoy it!
Tickets at the door: £5.00/children free.
