At 4pm on Saturday, December 18, a Christmas festive concert with a difference will be performed in the beautiful, candlelit church of St Thomas’s in Winchelsea.
Introduced and explained by Ann Rachlin, commere and internationally famous teacher of musical appreciation, the ever popular London based Pegasus Choir will perform songs focussing on the secular traditions of our island, not least that of wassailing the apple trees of the Garden of England that is Kent and Sussex.
Composers Vaughan Williams, Rutter, Holst and Grainger will feature as well as Elizabeth Poston and her Jesus Christ the Apple Tree. From Wassailing apples to Christmas plum pudding, from Decking the Halls to the Holly and the Ivy, there is festive music for all to enjoy. Winchelsea Arts looks forward to welcoming everyone to another superb concert at St Thomas’s.
Tickets can be purchased online at winchelsea-arts.org.uk
