01 Dec Christmas Concert
Oxford’s contemporary voices are coming to Winchombe, with a scintillating repertoire of seasonal choral gems for their Christmas Concert at St Peter’s Church. Established in 1999, Commotio exist to bring to the fore works lost to the mainstream repertoire, and works by emerging composers. This concert draws together some of Commotio’s favourite seasonal works, including the title track of their best-selling 2013 CD ‘Rose in the Middle of Winter’, which according to Gramophone Magazine “will make all but the hardest hearts swell with Christmas spirit.”
Founded in 1999 and based in Oxford, the choir Commotio performs contemporary choral music primarily from the 20th and 21st centuries showcasing works by younger or lesser-known composers. The choir is particularly recognised for its fine tuning, attention to detail and challenging repertoire. The name Commotio derives from the Latin for movement/excitement.
Join Commotio for a fabulous evening of quality choral music on Saturday 15 December, 7:30 pm; and perhaps one of the choir’s legendary mince pies!
