Christmas at Christ Church: "Such Wondrous Tidings"


Date & Time: 
Dec 16 2017 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm

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
