Corelli’s Concerto grosso in G minor, Op. 6, No. 8 evokes all the hushed mystery of Christmas Eve.  The Lamb is one of Tavener’s most treasured works. The tender yet radiant cantata Dies Natalis is Finzi’s finest work as soprano Ailish Tynan aptly reflects the joy and wonder of a newborn child’s innocent perspective on the world.  She follows this with an all-time favourite, Mozart’s Exultante Jubilate with its gorgeous final movement Alleluia in which Mozart sets to music just that one word.  The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, one of Handel’s most popular works brims with splendour and operatic drama paving the way for some of our best loved Christmas carols sung with style by Ailish Tynan.  Don’t miss this festive roller-coaster.
