Spiritsong oct 09Churches with their high-pitched roofs, solid stone walls and lots of softer timber fittings have wonderful acoustics, especially for voices. 

Spiritsong, a Bangalow-based choir directed by local organist Warren Whitney, and the Nouveaux Singers, a choir from Lismore, led by Bruce McNicoll, are combining to present a Christmas concert for you to relax to.

Traditional Christmas music from throughout the ages is on the program as well as music by composers such as Bach, Schubert and Fauré.

Better known for his operas, Rossini composed some sacred music, and Spiritsong will be presenting his Ave Maria.

Choral works by contemporary English composer John Rutter will also be performed.

Tonight, Thursday 3 December, 8pm St Bartholomew’s Anglican Church, Alstonville.

And with just Spiritsong:

Saturday 12 December, 7.45pm All Souls Anglican Church, Bangalow.
