Christmas Old and New

Sunday 09 December 2018, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

St George’s Church, Tombland (Norwich).

UEA Chamber Choir, under the direction of UEA Choirmaster Tom Primrose, will perform their autumn concert ‘Christmas Old and New’, on Sunday 9 December at 6.30pm at St George’s Church, Tombland (Norwich).

The programme will include secular and sacred Christmas music spanning five centuries, from mediaeval carols to modern songs, from the well known to the undiscovered. Highlights will include Judith Weir’s delightful 'Illuminare Jerusalem', Pierre de la Rue’s evocative 'Gaude virgo', and Tomás Luis de Victoria’s powerful and intense 'O magnum mysterium'.

The chamber choir will also give a rare performance of Alan Rawthorne’s setting of Hardy’s 'The Oxen', and motets by Heinrich Schütz, and Samuel Scheidt, as well as some better-known Christmas favourites.

The concert is free to attend and all are welcome. For further information about the concert, please visit:, email:; phone: 01603 593948; or follow @UEAConcerts on Twitter or UEA Music Centre on Facebook.

What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon! 

If you had a great time at a DSD event, make sure you head to the website and leave your feedback and stories! Tell us about your ideas and what you want to see under Do Something Different.
