Programme Note

At the heart of Londinium's festive programme is Thomas Tallis' Missa Puer natus est nobis', a sumptuous Christmas Mass probably composed for the joint choirs of the English and Spanish Chapels Royal, and first performed for Queen Mary and King Philip II of Spain at Christmas 1554. Interspersed between its movements are fine recent carols by Francis Pott, Jonathan Dove, Peter Maxwell Davies, Cecilia McDowall, Gabriel Jackson, and Adrian Peacock, alongside classic festive works by Peter Warlock and Herbert Howells. This vibrant and diverse selection of music is capped by John Rutter's superb Hymn to the Creator of Light, a musical tribute to Howells.

Mince pies and wine will be served!

"Impressive accomplishment and no mean flair… superbly controlled advocacy..." (Gramophone)
