We are a group of dynamic and talented singers who had many years’ experience in other choirs before forming our own chamber group. Under the direction of conductor Jane Hopkins, we are typically a choir of 12 to 18 voices, performing a cappella or with accompaniment. Our repertoire includes both religious and secular works from the 13th century to the present day.
Christmas Concert – 5th December 2015, 7:30pm
St Mary Brookfield, Tufnell Park
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive concert in a beautiful church
Voxcetera’s popular annual Christmas Concert combines favourite carols and songs with gorgeous lesser known treats and exciting new arrangements of festive classics.
We will be joined by string players and the brilliant Paul Ayres on organ and piano.
Much-loved actress Anne Reid, the star of Last Tango in Halifax, Dinnerladies and much more, will give readings.
Music includes It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, Unto Us is Born a Son, Away in a Manger, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and Jingle Bells as well as pieces by John Rutter, Bob Chilcott, John Tavener and Jonathan Dove.
“I was surprised by how professional it was. I knew it would be good but I didn’t realise it would be perfect”
“I was entranced by Voxcetera’s ability to engage with the audience”
“…the relationship between the choir and conductor Jane Hopkins was astonishing. Sixteen pairs of eyes only occasionally glanced at their music, reserving their intense concentration for her ambulatory direction…”
“Even in the cold, Voxcetera sing to make your hearts warm… an audience of 100 shivers and applauds enthusiastically!”
“A feast for the ears”
From our Concert in St Sepulchre’s church, London, in March 2013
