Event description

Description

We will be back in the German Lutheran Church on Wednesday 20th December for a Baroque experience for Christmas. The concert will include Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater and Christmas cantatas by Telemann, Handel and Bach.

The St George's German Lutheran Church is owned and managed by the Historic Chapels Trust. St George's is the oldest surviving German Church in the British Isles, opened in 1762.

Today only the church and its former school adjacent are left to remind us of this huge refugee population in an area once called 'Little Germany'. The history of this part of London is one of successive waves of immigration: Huguenots, German speakers, Jews, Bangladeshis. Today the German episode in this story is far less known even though Aldgate and Whitechapel was home to the largest German speaking population outside the German lands for over a century.
