Programme Note

In the deep, still darkness, only candles pierce the winter gloom. And then, upon the silence, comes the luminous sound of a choir in harmony. With a sequence of Christmas music old and new, and readings to make you smile and reflect, Ex Cathedra's popular Christmas concerts are a uniquely magical way to begin your festive season.

Part of the St John's Smith Square Christmas Festival.

Early booking is recommended. This concert will end at approximately 10pm.
