Like in a colourful tapestry Cantatrix weaves all the elements of the traditional Christmas story into this programme, symbols of the holy birth as described in the gospel according to St. Luke. A story that has inspired writers, poets, painters and composers throughout the ages.
This festive programme is based on the rich English choral tradition but also includes arrangements by Jetse Bremer and a new composition by choir director Hans Leenders: ‘O-Antifonen’. It features the simplest of compositions as well as majestic cori spezzati and, of course, traditional Christmas carols.
Cantatrix will be accompanied by the Viva La Musica youth choir.
