The Manor House String Quartet perform a selection of best loved carols, all creatively arranged by their violinist Vaughan Jones. The group have gained a following with their popular concerts and unique Christmas repertoire. The quartet have released two critically acclaimed carol albums which have been played on radio stations across the world, including ABC Australia and Classic FM here in the U.K. This will be their third Christmas concert at St.Martin-in-the-Fields and will include some of their favourite Christmas offerings as well as a couple of less well-known gems!
