For centuries Christmas and the surrounding seasons have inspired composers to new heights of invention. This programme reaches across the ages, from the eternal beauty of the Tudor church right up to the twenty-first century, with each piece chosen to evoke a sense of mystery and joy.
Returning with this specially selected programme for Cambridge Early Music, The Gesualdo Six take you on a magical musical journey through the ages and across borders, weaving well-known seasonal carols seamlessly into highlights from contemporary composers.
The programme will include
Thomas Tallis Videte miraculum
Trad. arr. Michael Praetorius Es ist ein Ros entsprungen
Peter Cornelius The Three Kings
Joanna Marsh In Winter’s House.
