Forthcoming events: 

St George’s Singers, under their new Music Director David Stevens, will be performing a programme of seasonal music and carols at their Christmas Celebration Concert on 19th December at 7.30 pm, in St George’s Church, High Street, Belfast.

The choir will sing one of the most familiar pieces of 18th-century Italian sacred music, the Magnificat that has often been attributed to Giovanni Battista Pergolesi but which many believe was actually composed by Pergolesi’s teacher, Francesco Durante. What is not in doubt is the beauty of the piece, or the originality of the seasonal arrangement that will be sung at the concert, with familiar carols interspersed.

The second part of the concert will also have a festive theme and will feature the popular Christmas Cantata by British composer, organist and scholar of 20th-century English music, Geoffrey Bush.
