A Celebration of Christmas

The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, was founded just under 500 years ago by Thomas Wolsey and Henry VIII. Now world famous in its own right for the excellence and versatility of its singing, the Choir tours worldwide and undertakes a prodigious recording schedule as well as singing daily in the cathedral. Additionally, the Choir collaborates with a number of orchestras, recently recording Goodall’s Eternal Light: A Requiem for EMI, which won a Classical Brit Award.
What better way to get into the festive spirit than with this programme of some of the most- loved and beautiful Christmas music ever written, performed by one of the greatest cathedral choirs in the world. The concert is presented by Howard Goodall in informative and entertaining festive form.
