About this Event

The Waynflete Singers usher in the celebratory mood of Christmas with an exciting programme of choral and brass music, courtesy of Onyx Brass. Three of Handel's Coronation Anthems will be interspersed with Gabrieli's thrilling brass Canzonas, music which is tailor-made for the cathedral acoustic. John Rutter's setting of the Gloria provides a brilliant and joyous opener for the second half, which also contains appropriate Christmas fare with audience participation.
