St Mary’s Cathedral will resound with carols and Christmas joy for the annual, and much anticipated, A Choral Christmas Celebration concert.
Year after year sell-out crowds have been delighted by this traditional Christmas experience which sees the world-famous St Mary’s Cathedral Choir and celebrity readers offer glorious music and verse sure to fill every heart with Christmas cheer.
“There is nothing like the traditional Christmas experience: choristers singing beautiful music in such an inspiring building at this special time of year. What a great way to start Christmas,” said Cathedral Director of Music Thomas Wilson.
Following on from the success of the previous 3 years’ performances, we will again present 2 performances of A Choral Christmas Celebration –a concert involving the Cathedral Choir and the Sinfonia Australis, performing music by J S Bach, Handel, Bruckner and others. Prominent public figures will read seasonal texts, both sacred and secular. At the 7pm performance, the Archbishop of Sydney will give a Christmas reflection.
The highlight for many audience members will be the opportunity to join in singing with the choir and orchestra for such favourite carols as ‘O Come, all ye faithful’, ‘Hark the herald angels sing’ and ‘Once in royal David’s city’.
