A Journey from Darkness to Light

Music for Christmas: 8PM Friday 19 December, Merton College chapel

An hour of music in the wonderful atmosphere of Merton College chapel. As the performers emerge from total darkness the music moves from stillness to joy; from chant to 21st century polyphony. With Arvo Pärt’s Magnificat and John Sheppard’s Verbum Caro. And works by Palestrina, Josquin, Dunstable, Duggan, Lloyd and Lang! Come all ye who are overladen with shopping and the burden of modern living. Let it wash away in the sweet music of the heavens!
