This wonderful concert from the Redbourn Festival Chorus will explore how a great deal of our beloved Christmas music was passed down to us through the folk tradition.
They will sing the delicious Fantasia on Christmas Carols by Vaughan Williams, based on folk carols that he and Cecil Sharp collected in southern England. Alongside this will be folk settings of carols from other parts of the British Isles, as written down by the likes of Bellowhead’s Paul Sartin and others.
The Festival Chorus will share their concert with Redbourn Folk Club who are certain to add a surprise or two.
