The Sixteen & Harry Christophers

Venue: The Concert Hall (Directions)

Sun 22 Dec, 19:30


Programme includes:

Make we joy now in this fest

The Saviour's Work (The Babe in Bethlem's manger laid)

Adam lay y-bounden

Jesus Christ the apple tree

Corpus Christi carol

This have I done for my true love

Lo, how a rose e'er blooming


Of a Rose

The Salutation Carol

A Ceremony of Carols

And medieval carols.

The Sixteen's programme for Christmas 2019 features Britten's hugely popular A Ceremony of Carols. This masterful and idiomatic work continues to be a staple fo the choral canon and is an example of Britten's genius. The rest of the programme combines the traditional medieval carol tunes upon which so much Christmas music has been based, contrasted with more modern delights including Warlock's Corpus Christi and Walton's festive Make we joy now in this fest.
