CANDLELIT CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Saturday 23rd December, 2017 8:00pm
Wadham College Chapel, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PN
Pro Victoria - conductor Duncan Saunderson
Pro Victoria will perform festive favorites alongside some of the most glorious Christmas polyphony by Tallis, Guerrero and Palestrina as well as anthems by Adrian Batten (1591 - 1637) whose music is precisely contemporaneous with Wadham Chapel (built 1610 - 1613).
Oxford Liedertafel will perform Palestrina's concise and perfectly crafted Missa Brevis and two of Schubert's most ravishing compositions for mens' voices, Salve Regina and Die Enfernten with its extraordinary modulations depicting a girl far away.
Stephen Burrows - countertenor
Tallis - Videte miraculum
