Our first self-presented concert of the year has been designed to be unashamedly exciting! It features two Glorias. Vivaldi’s much-loved work is the most popular musical setting to the Gloria of all time. It is sunny, full of stirring fanfares and musical fireworks. In contract, Poulenc’s Gloria is a gorgeous self-affirming work which is full of humour, jauntiness and haunting music.

The title work is a musical landmark performed all around the world during the Christmas season. Not only will you hear an engaging, fresh and sophisticated work sung by full choir but also a number of other Christmas works.
