Durham Singers: American Christmas
A programme of Christmas Music, including works by Eric Whitacre and Morten Lauridsen, and arrangements of popular Christmas songs. This year our Christmas concert takes us across the Atlantic for a heart-warming festive programme that includes works by contemporary American composers, music inspired by the American gospel tradition, and a selection of popular Christmas songs.
Morten Lauridsen's setting of "O Magnum Mysterium" is a modern classic, and Peter Gritton's lovely arrangements are guaranteed to put everyone in the mood for Christmas. There will also be some English favourites, and the usual selection of carols for all. Morten Lauridsen O Magnum Mysterium Eric Whitacre Lux Aurumque, little tree Ken Burton Rest arr.
