Chamber choir in concert Sunday

The Peterborough Chamber Choir, directed by David Vernier, will be presenting a concert at All Saints’ Church on Sunday at 4 p.m.

Titled “O magnum mysterium,” the concert of a cappella music continues a tradition begun by the choir in the 1980s as a celebration of and reflection on the Christmas season, which this year will feature music drawn from the 16th through 21st centuries.

Composers and arrangers include Tomás Luis de Victoria, Charles Ives, Edvard Grieg, Richard Rodney Bennett, Eric Whitacre, William Dawson, Moses Hogan, and choir director David Vernier.

Readings by members of the choir will illuminate the concert’s themes — Epiphany, Mary, the carol, the “great mystery” described in Victoria’s text, and the importance of the season for family and community celebration.

The concert is free and suggested for older children and adults.

In lieu of an admission fee, donations can be made to benefit the All Saints’ Church Community Supper program.
