Ralph Vaughan Williams arranged folk carols from across the land to create his delightful Fantasia on Christmas Carols, and this sparkling collection of melodies will form one of the highlights of our Christmas concert. And after a five year break, we are delighted to return Lewisham’s parish church of St Mary the Virgin.
Like your mother’s Christmas pudding, our festive feast will present a rich mixture of seasonal fare including traditional carols for choir and audience, and original Yuletide tunes by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, John Rutter, William Mathias, John Tavener and Carl Rütti for the choir alone.
All of this under the direction of our maestro Dan Ludford-Thomas and our accompanist extraordinaire Nico de Villiers.
A very merry Christmas to one and all!
