Christmas in England
A Tribute to Sir David Willcocks (1919-2015)
To say “Christmas Carol” is inevitably to think of the thrilling and beautiful arrangements that Sir David Willcocks, who died in September 2015, wrote when he was the organist-choirmaster at King’s College, Cambridge and later director of the Royal College of Music. Paying tribute to this giant of the 20th century choral world, and the Lessons & Carols services that he helped make famous, St. Martin’s Chamber Choir invites back acclaimed organist Ralph Valentine, who has thrilled St. Martin’s holiday audiences for the last two years with his thundering accompaniments. Christmas with St. Martin’s — A Denver tradition!
