Commotio are pleased to return to SJE Arts to perform a concert packed with Advent harmony. Bringing to the fore neglected works, such as Britten's 'Christ' Nativity' (the precursor to 'A boy was born'), lesser known works by Tippett, Maxwell Davies and Leighton, and discovering newer works by Jackson, MacDowall and Mantyjarvi, this will a concert of sensational seasonal music.

There is even a chance of one of Commotio's legendary interval mince pies!
