A Grand Georgian Christmas with Gabrieli Roar

December 6th 2024

Partner event

400 children and young people from 10 schools in York will be forming two choirs, singing with Gabrieli's dozen singers, plus a band comprising of: strings, flutes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, trumpets, drums, organ, harpsichord, ophicleide and, (how could we not?) two very special serpents, 

 
The programme explores English music for parish churches in the Georgian period, spanning the century from around 1740. Much of the music is robust and cheerful and well connected to folk traditions: the Christmas repertoire especially so.  We look forward to welcoming you all to the Christmas performance.
