The Addison Singers are proud to present a brand new composition by Howard Goodall: ‘The Gravity of Kindness’ – a Christmas Meditation for soprano, chorus & chamber orchestra. Commissioned by the Addison Singers in memory of Cathy Bereznicki and thanks to her generous bequest, this 15 minute piece is a beautiful and moving gem inspired by three pieces of text: the poem ‘Kindness’ by Naomi Shihab Nye, the ‘Coventry Carol’, and a traditional Mexican lullaby.

Alongside the new piece the Oratorio Choir sing Part 1 of ‘Messiah’ in addition to the ever popular ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, whilst the Chamber Choir perform more recent seasonal music by Huw Watkins, James Macmillan and Judith Weir.
