Programme Note

The Gesualdo Six, directed by Owain Park, present works from their new Christmas CD recording in the incredible acoustics of Ely Cathedral Lady Chapel.

“Weavers of rich and plangent aural tapestries, The Gesualdo Six meld style and substance with beguiling sure-footedness.” – BBC Music Magazine

- - -

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.
