Two pieces central to our programme this year are ‘On Christmas Night’, composed by Robert Chilcott in 2010, which offers some glorious new arrangements of Christmas favourites and Ralph Vaughan Williams' ‘Fantasia on Christmas Carols’. Written in 1912, this single-movement work consists of English folk carols collected in southern England by Vaughan Williams and Cecil Sharp, interposed with brief orchestral quotations from more well-known carols; a rich menu indeed!
We are pleased to be joined by internationally acclaimed accompanists, organist Douglas Tang and cellist Carola Krebs, and between the carols, we are honoured to have the well-known composer Will Todd provide our readings.

This year we are pleased to support the work of the Meath Epilepsy Charity, Godalming
