The Sixteen at Christmas

Fri 16 Dec 19:45 - 21:45

Capturing the joy and sincerity of the festive season, the Sixteen contrast much-loved modern classics including Gabriel Jackson’s The Christ-child and Cecilia McDowall’s Brightest Star, with the gorgeous Renaissance sounds of Palestrina’s Videntes stellam Magi and Sheppard’s Reges Tharsis.

For fans of the more traditional, the programme has old favourites like Past Three O’Clock and Angels, From the Realms of Glory.
