Event Details

The Concord Chorale celebrates the holiday season with "Behold, I Bring you Glad Tidings," a presentation of works by Purcell, Buxtehude and Vivaldi.  The Chorale is joined by a young and promising group of soloists plus a 17-piece Baroque orchestra with brass.

The composers bring together three different religious traditions from the Baroque era, those of the Anglican, Lutheran and Catholic churches, and represent hopeful music for Advent and Christmas. Buxtehude was a teacher of Bach, and his sunny and joyful music represents the best of the Baroque tradition in that generation.  Vivaldi's "Magnificat," one of his lesser known works, is similar to his popular "Gloria" and brings a sense of gravitas to the performance.

Three concerts will be performed:

Friday, December 8, 7 PM at South Congregational Church, 27 Pleasant Street, Concord;

Saturday, December 9, 3 PM at Christ Church, 43 Pine Street, Exeter;

Sunday, December 10, 3 PM again at South Congregational Church

Advance tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for seniors. Students are free. Tickets also available at Gibson's Bookstore and Merrimack County Savings Bank, Concord; Water Street Bookstore, Exeter; by calling 603-463-5504 or on the Chorale website, www.concordchorale.org. At the door, tickets are $25 and $20.
