Soul at Saint James – Christmas

Church Window Mask

Sunday 3 December 2pm

Join us for exuberant gospel music and well known Christmas carols.

  • Getting here

    We are at 197 Piccadilly London W1J 9LL between Piccadilly and Jermyn Street, about 200 yards from Piccadilly Circus.

  • The Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir will be rocking St James’s gorgeous courtyard with their own gospel take on the Nine Lessons And Carols, a selection of seasonal texts and sizzling gospel arrangements of carols. This is always a beautiful occasion, a lovely way to begin the run-up to the great Feast of Christmas. Our food vendors will help you to fight the cold weather…but wrap up warmly anyway!

    The Soulful Celebration Messiah’s version of Handel’s “And He Shall Purify” is one of the best pieces of music we perform…and this year we’ll also be singing the Hallelujah Chorus from the same album. Other classics include Micah Stampley’s magisterial arrangement of “Joy To The World” and our own Peter Yarde Martin’s take on “We Three Kings”. There’ll also be original spoken word pieces and poetry alongside traditional texts, two of which we’ll explore through extemporary song.

    St James’s Piccadilly W1J 9LL, gates open 1.30pm, free entry, register on Eventbrite to secure your place, and to make a donation towards event costs if you can.
