About the Event
This not-to-be-missed Christmas Concert will bring together both well knows Christmas classics, and lesser known festive choral music.
The programme will include two versions of O magnum mysterium, one by Poulenc and the other by the contemporary American compose rMorten Lauridsen. We will also perform two versions of The three kings: one in the well-known setting by Cornelius which we will sing in the original German, and the other by contemporary British composer Johnathan Dove - full programme below.
