York Early Music Christmas Festival

York Early Music Christmas Festival

Christmas is definitely coming early to York, as the National Centre for Early Music (NCEM) has announced the return of York Early Music Christmas Festival from 3 to 11 December 2021 at St Margaret’s Church and the University of York. Many of the concerts are staged by candlelight, with mulled wine available to complete the experience!

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's A Baroque Christmas opens things, and then performances include the Gesualdo Six's In Winter's House, a Mexican theme from Siglo de Oro’s Christmas in Puebla, tenor James Gilchrist and lutenist Matthew Wadsworth in Divine Love and Earthly Passions, the intriguing combination of Bojan Cicic - violin  Gawain Glenton - cornetto  and Silas Wollston - organ in Cornetto & violin: A Contest of Equals, York Bach Choir and many more. 

The programme includes one of finest young professional ensembles supported by the NCEM’s Creative Europe funded programme EEEmerging +; award-winning young artists Prisma, from Germany, present A Baroque Christmas in their very particular entertaining style. 

Full details from the NCEM website.
