Join us for an evocative choral excursion through the Christmas story, featuring the music of Jonathan Dove, Vaughan Williams, Britten, Tavener, Kodaly and many more … with a few mince pies and some mulled wine for the road.

Our Christmas journey begins with the heightened expectations of Advent—the wondrous music of this season is often overlooked in the mad rush of shopping and carol concerts—then takes us through the Nativity story by way of a few familiar and not so familiar carols, before leading us into a musical Epiphany.
