Christmas choral music that spans nations and centuries, lovingly performed by Harry Christophers and The Sixteen.

Christmas is a time for celebration, but it’s also a time for reflection. This is a Christmas concert with a lovely difference: choral music from Renaissance Italy to 21st century Britain, performed by one of the world’s best chamber choirs.

Pre-concert conversation at 6:15pm with Harry Christophers CBE. This conversation will be signed by a British Sign Language Interpreter.
