Our programme recounts the journey to the manger in a glorious sequence of music from mediaeval and Renaissance Europe. We follow each scene of the Christmas story, beginning in Advent and moving through to the Nativity, the visits of the Shepherds and the Wise Men, and finally to the Feast of Candlemas. Nearly every major composer of the period is represented in a feast of festive music: highlights include Victoria’s intimate O magnum mysterium, thrilling motets by Byrd, Lassus and Sheppard, mediaeval carols, and irresistible dances from Spain and Germany.
