Long, long ago

There is music for Advent and Christmas from Londinium and conductor Andrew Griffiths in Long, Long Ago at the church of St Sepulchre without Newgate, Holborn Viaduct, London EC1A 2DQ on Friday 15 December 2017. 

In a typically inventive programme the choir is presenting a mixture of well known and unusual repertoire from the Renaissance to the present day. I have it on good authority that O Magnum Mysterium by the Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi is worth the trip alone, but there is also Jonathan Harvey's The Angels, Herbert Howells' Long, long ago and Heinrich Schütz's Das Wort ward Fleisch alongside well-known pieces by Elizabeth Poston, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Edward Naylor, John Tavener, Peter Warlock, Anton Bruckner and more.

All that, wine and mince pies! Further information from the Londinium website.
