On 11 December 2017, The Temple Church Choir and the Temple Singers, conductor Roger Sayer, launch the 2017 Temple Winter Festival, five days of seasonal musical festivities at Temple Church. The opening concert features music from Sweelinck & Buxtehude to Messiaen & Lauridsen. Other highlights include Ben Nicholas and the choir of Merton College in a programme of Advent and Christmas music, and they are joined by reader Anthony Andrews, Peter Philips and the Tallis Scholars in Monteverdi, Palestrina & Isaac, and Owain Park and the Gesualdo Six, and Owain Park also conducts the BBC Singers (look out for my interview with Owain on the blog this coming Saturday).  The final concert is vocal ensemble Voces 8 in a mixture of ancient and modern.
