Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, spouses, rellies, that distant uncle no-one talks about – these are the stars of our final 2017 concert. Of course, it’s the relationships between them that interest us, be they happy and fulfilling or complicated and fraught. We’ll illuminate these through motets, madrigals, part-songs, folksong, spirituals, jazz and pop numbers, and in Carissimi’s beautiful early oratorio Jephte – for soloists, chorus and chamber organ – with its final, very moving lament. But don’t worry; we’ll send you away primed for the familial joys of Christmas! Somehow.
