Christmas Music at St George’s Chapel

Christmas Music at St George’s Chapel

Enjoy listening to some Choral and Organ music from St George’s Chapel (all recorded before the area was placed in tier three/four).

From Wednesday 23rd December you can watch Allegro (from Symphonie VI) by Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937) being played by organist Luke Bond (Assistant Director of Music at St George’s Chapel).

The choir’s videos shared over this Christmas period, recorded on Monday 7 December, represent the only time this year that the full choir of men and boys has sung together (having sung some services separately during the Michaelmas term) since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March.
If you know a boy aged 6-8 (Years 2-3 at school) who loves singing and would like to find out more about becoming a chorister at St George’s Chapel, our online Chorister Open Morning will take place on Saturday 23rd January at 9.30am. Click here for more information.

From Christmas Eve you can watch the Chapel Choir (Lay Clerks and Choristers) conducted by Director of Music James Vivian sing O Come all ye faithful.

From Christmas Day you can watch the Chapel Choir sing We wish you a Merry Christmas.

Also please enjoy a recording made by the choir two years ago and you can read more about the choir in the original news article here.
