CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Keble College Chapel, Oxford
Friday 10 December 2021
7.30pm

David Bednall Welcome all Wonders: A Christmas Cantata

David Bednall's Christmas cantata Welcome all Wonders was praised on its premiere as 'ingenious' and 'extremely appealing'. Luxuriating in the texture of choir, organ and solo trumpet, the piece draws on an inspiring selection of texts, narrating the familiar Nativity story in a fresh, contemporary, and profound way. Bednall's luminous writing for choir is alternately jubilant and meditative, uplifting and thought-provoking. The ornate beauty of Keble College Chapel provides the perfect environment in which to experience this masterpiece of contemporary festive music at Christmastime.
