King's Lynn Festival Chorus

ALISON CROOSE St Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn

ALISON CROOSE

> St Nicholas Chapel, King's Lynn

It was a marriage waiting to happen, so when the fine chorus sang in the huge chapel with its superb acoustic the result was electrifying.

The architect of this match-making was music director Michael Kibblewhite who crafted a programme suited to both choir and beautiful building.

His reputation as a choral director shone through, not least in the spine-tingling unaccompanied procession and recession by candlelight which opened and closed the concert.

The combination of chorus, chapel and Christmas music struck a chord with 700 people who packed the pews to enjoy music ranging from Bach's Christmas Oratorio and Magnificat to the atmospheric work of contemporary American composer, Morten Lauridsen. All was enhanced by organist Julian Wilkins.
