Christmas music at Fulneck
Festive music for Christmas returns to Fulneck with exuberant trumpets and choruses ! Bach’s festive joy is matched by Handel’s triumphant Hallelujah chorus. In between the more reflective moments of Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas Carols and Part I of Handel’s Messiah are in tune with the anticipatory mood of Advent.

Fulneck Moravian Church is at the heart of the Moravian settlement near Pudsey. With its warm acoustic and even warmer welcome, it makes a fine venue for concerts such as those given regularly by St Peter’s Singers.
These concerts are enhanced by the recent restoration of the Schnetzler-Binns organ, which can also be heard at the frequent organ recitals.
St Peter’s Singers are grateful to Brother Michael Newman for the warm welcome we customarily receive from the Church.
Free parking is available at the first corner you reach after entering the Fulneck settlement from Fartown.
