The Waynflete Singers usher in the celebratory mood of Christmas with an exciting programme of choral and brass music, courtesy of Onyx Brass, described in BBC Music Magazine as “easily the classiest brass ensemble in Britain”.
The programme includes Handel’s Coronation Anthems, interspersed with Gabrieli’s thrilling brass Canzonas, and Heinrich Schutz’s mighty setting for double choir of Psalm 100, Jauchzet dem Herrn. John Rutter’s setting of the Gloria provides a brilliant and joyous opener for the second half, which concludes with a selection of Christmas carols for choir and audience.
