The Endelienta Scholars: 'Magnificat' Choral music for Advent including Bach and Buxtehude
Saturday 13th December, 7.30pm at St Endellion Church

Our themes are darkness, light, anticipation, hope, and uncertainty as we move through Advent to the bright lights of Christmas. Beginning with Buxtehude's Magnificat, we include movements from Charpentier's Messe de Minuit (written for Christmas Midnight Mass) as well as music by Berkeley, Gardner, Manz, Praetorius, Taverner, and Whitacre, and traditional carols, concluding with movements from Bach's cantata, Sing to the Lord a new song.

The Endelienta Scholars is a newly formed ambitious chamber choir comprised of choral scholars (both past and present) from some of the nation's top universities. They are proud to be founded and generously supported by the charity Endelienta. Currently run by soprano Katy Thomson and conductor/composer Oliver Tarney, the choir perform their inaugural concert at St Endellion with a sequence of songs for Advent.

Barn Owls: the Endelienta Poetry Group

The group is led by Helen Jagger, a published poet and tutor of more than 35 years teaching experience. Cost £7 per session (£5 concessions) includes hot drink and biscuits.

Helen Jagger The poetry group has met on the first Saturday of each month since March 2014. It is designed for those who enjoy reading poetry (but are perhaps rather puzzled or even hostile to much contemporary poetry) and welcome the chance to discuss modern poetry within a group. The sessions try to take our understanding of poetry deeper by encouraging writing in response to specific poems' themes and poetic techniques.

Helen Jagger is a poet, and teacher of poetry writing whose work has been published in magazines in the UK, US and Australia. She runs weekly poetry workshops as well as the Poetry Society's North Cornwall Stanza and was poet in residence at Pencarrow from 2010 - 2012. She is currently working with the Falmouth Poetry Group on a new poetry festival: for 28-29 June, 2014. She founded and ran the Indian King Arts Centre in Camelford for ten years, after (very) early retirement from her post as Head of English at Sir James Smith's School, Camelford. She graduated in English literature from Cambridge University in 1979. If you'd like to talk more about this, or to book, please call Helen on 01840 212161 or email her by clicking this link: indianking@btconnect.com.
