Programme Note

A dazzling array of traditional festive favourites. On Christmas Night is a musical celebration of the Christmas story, presented as a sequence of eight original carols incorporating familiar carol melodies within fresh new settings, resulting in an impressive array of styles and moods – from comforting and reflective to jubilant, swinging and folksy. Combining tradition and invention, On Christmas Night is a versatile and enchanting work popular with audiences worldwide.  Rutter’s Magnificat is a joyous celebration of the Virgin Mary, inspired by countries such as Spain, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Following the example set by Bach, the Magnificat text is extended, incorporating the fifteenth-century English poem Of a Rose, the prayers Sancta Maria, and the Sanctus (set to the Gregorian chant of the Missa Cum Jubilo) and TRADITIONAL CAROLS FOR ALL.
