The choir of westminster abbey conducted by douglas guest - christmas carols


Bach’s St Matthew Passion and Haydn’s Creation are amongst the highlights of the Abbey’s 2017–18 concert season, which also sees the return of the Summer Organ Festival.

The adult choir consists of 29 members; 19 will travel to Manhattan the day after Thanksgiving for a five-day, four-night stay. Between nine to 10 hours a day will be spent in rehearsal for a work that was written by conductor/composer Joseph Martin, who will also lead the performance.

The Westminster Choir has been hailed by audiences and critics for its creative programing and ability to deeply engage listeners. Its performance of John Adams’ El Niño, conducted by Joe Miller, at the 2014 Spoleto Festival USA was praised by The New York Times as “… superb. Meticulously prepared, the chorus was remarkable for its precision, unanimity and power.”
