Award-winning choir Tenebrae makes its Nottingham debut with an evening of words and music for the festive season. This specially-created programme takes the audience on a winter’s journey in the company of its protagonist, who shares with us his memories of Christmases past – from the simple joys of music-making and storytelling to wintry walks and precious time spent with friends and family. The spoken word is echoed and enhanced by a rich mix of music for Advent and Christmas, including favourites such as Once in Royal David’s City and In the bleak midwinter alongside lesser-known musical gems from the Renaissance to the present day.
