Bangkok Music Society hosts Christmas concert

Bangkok Music Society hosts Christmas concertBangkok Music Society (BMS) is holding its annual year-end festive concert “Christmas Wish” at two venues — Shrewsbury International School, City Campus, off Rama IX Road, on Thursday at 6.30pm, and Evangelical Lutheran Church, Sukhumvit 50, on Dec 14 at 7.30pm.

Children can wish for the gift of their choice to be placed under the Christmas tree. But the origin of the festival is the birth of a baby, a very special wish from God, so Christians believe. The Bible relates that a young girl named Mary was told by an angel that she would bear a son, named Jesus, by means of the Holy Spirit.

The Magnificat or the Song Of Mary, is her wishful response to the news: “My soul magnifies the Lord.” It is an ancient hymn of praise set to music by many composers over the ages, one of the most recent being by the popular British composer John Rutter in 1990.

Rutter’s music for Magnificat is highly dramatic, both in the choral singing and the rich colours of the orchestration, using a wide range of modern harmonies and often jazzy rhythms with catchy melodies throughout. It is music that can be enjoyed by everyone of all ages.
