Join the BBC Singers and the BBC Concert Orchestra for a concert of Christmas music in the stunning surroundings of Christopher Wren’s Old Royal Naval College Chapel. David Hill conducts music by English composers including John Tavener’s starkly beautiful God is With Us, Peter Warlock’s haunting Bethlehem Down and Frank Bridge’s lively country dance. Nicky Spence is the soloist for Gerald Finzi’s lyrical Christmas cantata Dies Natalis and the concert comes to a close with Vaughan Williams’s glorious Fantasia on Christmas Carols with baritone Edward Price.

All ticket-holders are invited to enjoy a complimentary glass of mulled wine or soft drink and a mince pie in The Queen Mary Undercroft, beneath the Chapel, from 6.15pm. Doors to the Chapel will open at 7.00pm. The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and we would be grateful if people could take their seats by 7.25pm.
