Concert Information

The BBC Singers join forces with members of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and chamber ensemble Onyx Brass to perform a selection of seasonal music, old and new, at St Paul's Knightsbridge.

Listen to the antiphonal textures of 17th century motets, such as Praetorius' In Dulci Jubilo and Sweelinck and Gabrieli's contrasting Hodie Christus natus est placed alongside a cappella works from French 20th century masters Poulenc and Villette.

They are complemented by new works from leading choral composers of the 21st century including Jonathan Dove and Ward Swingle. Conductor Ben Parry completes the concert with his own work Magi as performed by the BBC Singers and members of the NYCGB Chamber Choir.
