Candle-lit choir to perform at North Norfolk churches
The Cantamus singers will perform their candlelit Christmas Concert in Thorpe Market and Trunch in early December.
North Norfolk’s Cantamus Singers will be performing their atmospheric candlelit concert by in Thorpe Market Church at 7.30pm on Friday December 7, and in Trunch Church the following evening, Saturday December 8, also at 7.30pm.
Cantamus will be performing ‘The Christmas Story’ by Heinrich Schutz; a dramatic and musical representation of the birth of Christ. Carols by Gustav Holst, Edward Elgar, Peter Warlock and John Stainer will be sung; congregational carols will also be performed.
The choir is led by its inspirational director Philip Adams who is also the Director of Music and Organist at Holy Trinity Church in West Runton.

Piano accompaniment is by Michael Finnissy.
