Our Epiphany concert celebrates the arrival of the three Kings and the shepherds in Bethlehem. We will of course be singing Cornelius’s timeless ‘The Three Kings’ but will also perform a beautiful piece by the same name by Jonathan Dove. We will also be singing music by Chilcott (The Shepherds’ Carol, Epiphany), Gjeilo (a beautiful arrangement of The First Nowell), Berlioz (The Shepherds’ Farewell), Will Todd (My Lord is come), Rutter (The Shepherd’s Pipe Carol) and much more.
