Vital Sparks Carols
December 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Vital Spark, a “West Gallery” quire from Malvern, will be performing a set of lively Christmas music in the style that would have been heard in country churches in the late 1700s. In the mid 1800s the West Gallery quires were turfed out of the churches and so took their music to the local pubs. In some areas, notably Sheffield and Cornwall, the carols are still sung in pubs and other community venues. Vital Spark sing these carols in four part harmony with accompanying music played by the singers on a mixture of instruments, including violins, concertinas, recorders and a bassoon.
