Continuing their residency with Music at Oxford, the Marian Consort return with A Jacobean Christmas, a festive programme that features early English composers at their most unbuttoned and celebratory, with music written for the famously festive Stuart court. Alongside these are more intimate, introspective sacred works by a golden age of English composers – Byrd, Gibbons, Weelkes and Bull – that in some cases belie their creators’ often colourful personal lives.

The Jericho Youth Choir and St Barnabas Choristers will be joining The Marian Consort for three pieces as part of Music at Oxford's With One Voice Learning and Participation project, which sees school children from Jericho working with music leaders and members of The Marian Consort on different singing and composition projects throughout 2023-24.

Singing one person to a part, The Marian Consort give sublimely refined, spacious and impeccably tuned performances.‘ The Sunday Times
