The Hallé Choir commissions for the first time
5th December 2014
The commissioning of the work was a true community experience in every sense, with all members helping to raise funds – from cake sales and professional portraits, to sponsoring specific parts of the vocal score. This work with the Hallé is particularly important to McCabe as he has great fondness for the organisation since studying at the Royal Manchester College of Music (now the RNCM).
Christ’s Nativity will receive its world premiere at the choir’s Christmas concert on December 14 at Halle St Peter’s, Manchester. Accompanied by organist Jonathan Scott and conducted by Madeleine Venner, more news on the event can be found here.
