Presented by Canterbury Music Club
The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and conductor Graham Ross make their debut at Colyer Fergusson Hall with ‘What sweeter music’, a joyous and ravishing programme of festive choral masterpieces old and new.
“What sweeter music”
Hieronymus Praetorius’s Christmas Magnificat and Palestrina’s ‘Surge, illuminare’ sit alongside two exquisite Hymns to the Virgin by Pierre Villette and Benjamin Britten, James Long’s invigorating ‘Vigilate’, motets by Messiaen, Tavener, Will Todd, and John Rutter, and a beautiful selection of arrangements that tell us that Christmas has truly begun.
We may need to change details of concerts due to circumstances beyond our control.
