Having showcased music that focused specifically on Christmas Day in our 2018 concert, and eschewed all mention of Christ in our 2019 performance, this year we will shine a light on those who witnessed the birth: sages, shepherds, angels and animals. How did this extraordinary event affect those who saw it, and how has their experience inspired choral composers? Featuring music by Berlioz, Warlock, Lauridsen and Betty Roe, amongst others, alongside our traditional carols and festive refreshments.
