After a sold-out concert for Twelfth Night in 2023, Alex Wilson is delighted to be returning to St Nicholas Priory in 2024. We will take a musical tour through the songs and folk traditions of Europe at Christmas; singing, baking and dancing our way through nearly 200 years of musical storytelling.
Audiences can expect an intimate concert experience, featuring some of the most popular pieces alongside some exciting new additions from composers including Liszt and Dohnanyi. Our journey features traditional celebrations from the UK to Romania, taking in Hungary, Finland and everywhere in between. We will hear music by Sadie Harrison based on beautiful seasonal melodies from Ukraine, and an intimate retelling of the Christmas story using traditional French carols.
Poignant, simple melodies and lively, celebratory sound worlds, shining light on beautiful music that deserves to be heard. This is Christmas described in soft, delicate tones – without sleigh bells and tinsel but full of discovery, familiarity and warmth.
