The Sixteen at Christmas
A celebration of Christmas music old and new
- Article Type: | TV and Radio |
In a festive concert live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Harry Christophers and The Sixteen present a broad programme of Christmas music from different periods and genres.
From Renaissance choral anthems by Josquin and Mouton, to traditional popular carols arranged by Vaughan Williams, there is plenty of variety in the music. The sequence of works explores three great themes from the Christmas Story – the Virgin mother, the baby Jesus and Herod’s brutality towards the Infant. It promises to be a great evening that will get you ready for seasonal celebrations.
