    A programme of festive and reflective music including:

    BRUCKNER Motets: Ave Maria, Virga Jesse
    ECCARD Ich steh an deine Krippen hier; Übers Gebirg Maria geht
    MENDELSSOHN Frohlocket, ihr Völker auf Erden
    PÄRT Magnificat

    Music for solo cello by JS BACH

    SCO CHORUS
    GREGORY BATSLEER- Conductor
    PHILIP HIGHAM - Cello

    Join the SCO Chorus for a seasonal journey from the joyful Renaissance to the lyrical expressiveness of today's music by Pärt and Whitacre. Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold) is extraordinarily lush, and creates a slowly evolving wash of colours and light through the lyrics “Light, warm and heavy as pure gold, and the angels sing softly to the newborn babe.”
