A Mystical Christmas…

… a journey through Advent and a festive Wassail

Nottingham Chamber Singers Angela Kay, Rachel Parkes conductor

In the candlelit setting of this ancient church, the Nottingham Chamber Singers present a programme of atmospheric choral music and exquisite projected images which frame Chilcott’s beautiful setting of the great ‘O Antiphons’. The mystery and awe of these ancient texts take the listener on a journey through the last seven days of Advent to the triumphant arrival of the Messiah.

And to end the concert, in the spirit of the Christmases of yesteryear, a wassail cup and carols for all!

Programme to include:

Chilcott: Advent Antiphons
MacMillan: O Radiant Dawn https://youtu.be/z8MILVwN2ss – some of our members contributed to this virtual choir recording in 2020.
Lauridsen: O Magnum Mysterium
Wassail Songs and Christmas Carols
