Description

WINTER WONDERLAND 2017

Christmas choral favourites from the Baroque to Bing Crosby




Once again the Elysian Singers return to Covent Garden with a sprinkling of serious and popular Christmas music from four centuries. English choral classics by Howells, Warlock, Tavener and Maxwell Davies rub shoulders with gems from the German baroque. And what Christmas would be complete without carols and arrangements by John Rutter and David Willcocks, let alone the great American standards made famous by Bing Crosby and friends? Come and join the celebration!
