The Northern Berkshire Chorale will present a winter concert of sacred music at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 11, in Chapin Hall, on the Williams College campus.
The choir is under the direction of Andrea Goodman and accompanied by Susan Hadfield. It will perform a concert of choral classics beginning with three verse anthems by Orlando Gibbons, including the rarely heard "This is the Record of John."
The choir also will sing selections from one of J.S. Bach’s Magnficat in D; the Kyrie and Gloria from the Messe de minuit by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, and several sections of Handel’s Messiah.
From the 20th century will be the opening chorus of Ottorini Respighi’s Laud to the nativity and Charles Stanford’s Ye Choirs of new Jerusalem.
The Chorale is a community choir comprised of faculty and staff from the Williams College community and its environs.
Suggested donation is $10 for adults, $5 for students.
