Enjoy some musical warmth and comfort to bring some light this holiday season
Throughout 2020, The King’s Singers’ Finding Harmony programme, its album and charitable mission have all focussed on the power music has to unite people. This message could not be more evident than at Christmastime. For centuries people of all different races, ages, faiths and nationalities have celebrated during the holiday season with their own songs that give thanks for the last year and their time together. At the end of one of the most difficult years imaginable, this programme brings warmth and comfort, through a selection of Christmas music which takes in some of the world’s best-loved songs alongside lesser known carols. It’s music that is sure to stay with you as you celebrate the season with those you love. The group is delighted to return to John Rutter’s church, All Saints, Chrishall, for this concert, where they filmed their first performance for IDAGIO’s Global Concert Hall back in July.
