Following their visit in Spring 2015, The Biber Ensemble, Ann Bond (harpsichord) and Louise Latham (baroque violin) make a welcome return. They were to be joined on by Rosy Williams, a talented and versatile young mezzo-soprano but unfortunately she is indisposed.
In view of this Ann and Louise have modified the programme, which will include works by Bach, Handel, Corelli and Biber.
Acclaimed musicians Chris Green and Sophie Matthews (with special guest Jude Rees) present a festive romp through 600 years of Christmas music, songs and carols.
Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending in the 20th century this is a whistle-stop tour of the origins of our midwinter festivities. Featuring long-forgotten songs and tales as well as some familiar and well-loved carols, a show guaranteed to delight the hearts of young and old.
Taking in 600 years of music and featuring music and songs played on archaic instruments such as cittern, shawm and rauschpfeife, as well as more familiar instruments such as guitar, flute, oboe and accordion, all helped along by GreenMatthews‘ trademark wit and humour, ‘A Brief History of Christmas‘ is the perfect show for anyone looking to recapture the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer
