Nowell sing we: medieval, renaissance and baroque music for Christmas

Nowell sing we: medieval, renaissance and baroque music for Christmas

Saturday, December 16, 2017 - 19:30

An exciting range of less well-known music for the Christmas season from the 13th to the 18th centuries. Some of the titles may be familiar, but the music won't be quite what you're expecting...

Refreshments will be available during the interval, together with a chance to speak to the singers about the music. There will also be a display of musical sources in facsimile including pieces featured in the concert.

Entry to the concert is free, but donations are invited. All proceeds will be shared between the group and Friends of the Holy Land, the church's chosen cause.
