The Spirit of Christmas – Dec. 6th 2014


A Saturday evening concert, starting at 7.30 p.m, in Sunderland Minster, conducted by David Murray, in association with Bishopwearmouth Young Singers.

Tickets £15.00 for Nave (£8 concessions for full-time students and on  income related benefits) or £8.00 (Gallery – limited view). Accompanied under 16s free.  Tickets are available from members of the Society, at the door, or on-line from – who also have a direct link on the home page of this website.

Our Christmas concert features Handel’s ‘Messiah’ Part 1 (the Christmas section) and ‘A Christmas Carol’ – music by David Murray and libretto by Tony Rudham – a seasonal musical for children Scrooge 2and adult choir.

It was devised by David and his friend Tony for primary school children, back in the 1970s. More recently David has added parts that involve an adult choir and so this piece will be a combined concert by the main Society with Bishopwearmouth Young Singers.

The Christmas section of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ will need no introduction and will complete a performance for all tastes.
