Christmas at Christ Church: "Such Wondrous Tidings"


Date & Time: 
Dec 15 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Friends of Music at Guilford's 45th Christmas at Christ Church performances are on Friday, Dec. 15, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 16, at 4:00 p.m., at the corner of Rt. 5 and Melendy Hill Rd., just over a mile south of Exit 1 off I-91. This season's theme, "Such Wondrous Tidings," is the title of one of ten mostly 15th-century carols to be sung by the 13-voice Guilford Chamber Singers, directed by Tom Baehr: sopranos Catie G. Berg, Christina Gibbons, and Robin Wolf; altos Jenny Holan, Laurie Schneski, Susan Stember Buhlmann, and Joy Wallens-Penford; tenors Steve John, Bill Johnson, and Peter Tracy; and basses Calvin Farwell, Tom Green, and Peter Nadolny.

Drawing from sources that utilize poems in Sloane MS 2593, the program includes original anonymous 15th-century compositions attributed to John Dunstaple and reworked by William Rockstro in the late 1800s, a 1912 setting by Richard Terry, two offerings by Oxford Book of Carols editor Martin Shaw, recent settings by Philip W. J. Stopford and John Corina, and a 14th-century text set by Baehr. Guilford Chamber Players provide instrumental introductions and interludes.

Don McLean performs his inimitable reading of "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas, and the evening ends with a few carols sung by everyone. Admission is free, with generous donations encouraged for dividing between FOMAG and Christ Church Guilford Society for the building's preservation. FOMAG also offers cards, CDs, and logowear for gift-giving or treating yourself while supporting its free and affordable programs. For further information, contact the FOMAG office at 802-254-3600 or office@fomag.org; visit online at www.fomag.org.
