Tenebrae: A Christmas Conversation

Friday 15 December 2023

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Award-winning choir Tenebrae returns to St Martin-in-the-Fields with an evening of words and music for the festive season.

This specially-created programme takes the audience on a winter’s journey in the company of its protagonist, who shares with us his memories of Christmases past – from the simple joys of music-making and storytelling to wintry walks and precious time spent with friends and family.

The spoken word is echoed and enhanced by a rich mix of music for Advent and Christmas, including favourites such as Once in Royal David’s City and In The Bleak Midwinter alongside lesser-known musical gems from the Renaissance to the present day.

Programme to include:

Bob Chilcott – The Shepherd’s Carol
Joanna Marsh – In Winter’s House
June Collin – The Quiet Heart
Ben Parry – The Aldeburgh Carol
Owain Park – O magnum mysterium
Bob Chilcott – Before the Ice
Gauntlett – Once in Royal David’s City
Trad. arr. Pearsall – In dulci jubilo
Will Todd – My Lord has come
