Songs of Bethlehem
Friday 7th December – SONGS OF BETHLEHEM concert 7.30pm
St Luke’s Choir + CHOIR OF BETHLEHEM + Vox Holloway + Young Vox
Amos Trust has invited six members of the Choir of Bethlehem – a Palestinian choir of young adults from Bethlehem in the Occupied West Bank – to the UK for a short tour in early December. They are wonderful singers, whose music expresses and embodies the amazing courage and hope of their people under the ongoing suffering of a brutal military occupation. It will be a wonderful event for St Luke’s and Vox Holloway at the beginning of the Advent season.
Each of the three choirs will sing separate elements of the programme, then we’ll all sing something together as a finale. The programme will be a mixture of Advent and Christmas themed music. Tickets Here
We have limited spaces left for Sopranos and Altos, due to the fact that the stage area is full. Sopranos and Altos wishing to join should apply here with a short email saying why you would like to join Vox. There is still space for some Tenors and Basses. Details of our membership policy are here.
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more special, we’re teaming up with the fabulous Choir of Bethlehem to bring a new twist to Christmas
A home team of Vox Holloway, Young Vox and St Luke’s Choir will sing alongside six members of the Palestinian choir for young adults, who have come on a short UK tour from their homes in Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, on the invitation of the Amos Trust.
Each of the choirs will sing independently – with seasonal songs in both English and Arabic – before uniting for a grand finale. We’re expecting it to be a once in a lifetime experience – a soaring celebration of hope and solidarity in an embattled world – and we hope you will join us for it.
When: Friday 7 December at 7.30pm
Where: St Luke’s Church, Hillmarton Road, Holloway, N7 9RE
Come and hear Vox Holloway sing one of one of the most sublime works in the sacred classical canon.
Tickets are going fast for the concert, which partners the Fauré Requiem with Incantation of Eden, an exquisite short meditation on memory by Harvey Brough and Justin Butcher.
The Faure Requiem and Incantation of Eden, conducted by James Murray, will be performed at 7.30pm on Sunday 25 November, at St Luke’s, Hillmarton Road, London N7 9JE.

All we need is an audience …
Thumbs up from Rick…
And we’re off…
Clara made our Days …
And Young Vox were wicked …
But who’s the man in the hat..?
No more hiding behind that pillar. Harvey outs Ray Davies…
With special thanks for a fabulous evening to Harvey Brough, Clara Sanabras, Rick Leigh, photographer to the stars Sophie Yauner. And of course, to the legend that is … Ray Davies.
Long live Donald Duck, vaudeville and variety
We’re sorry to say (well, not entirely sorry) that our performance of this fabulous 50th anniversary tribute to the Kinks’s classic album is SOLD OUT.
But if you missed the good old-fashioned steam-powered train, you’re sure to be able to catch it again some time, and you can hear some choice bits of the album – plus wise words from our maestro Harvey Brough – on Radio 3’s In Tune.
Here it is, folks: (we make our entry at 1hour, 36 mins)
Yes, we were there! Twenty-six of us. (and hopefully some of our friends were there, too). Seldom has there been such a squash on the 6th floor of Broadcasting House.
And it was Harvey’s birthday.
