The Horncastle and District Choral Society will be performing ‘Eternal Light, a Requiem’ by Howard Goodall, conducted by Thomas-Colin Thorpe and ‘Wachet Auf’ (Sleepers Wake) by J S Bach, conducted by Anne Brown, together with a selection of Christmas music.

The concert will take place on Saturday December 14 at St Mary’s Church in Horncastle at 7.30pm.

Admission £5 at the door, refreshments will be available during the interval.

Eternal Light is a modern requiem intended to provide solace to the living and includes setting of works such as ‘Lead, kindly light’ and ‘Do not stand at my grave and weep’.

In contrast, ‘Sleepers wake’ is a well- known and joyful piece written by J S Bach.

Other seasonal music includes ‘O Magnum Mysterium’ by Morten Lauridsen, a Nativity piece of almost ethereal beauty.

The choir will be accompanied throughout by Chris Hinkins.
