Oriana's 40th Christmas Tidings of Joy

10 December 2017

Wesley Uniting Church, National Circuit, Forrest



The Details

In its 40 years history Oriana has celebrated Christmas in many different ways. This concert looks at Christmas from some new perspectives, including selections from Britten’s Christ’s Nativity (written when he was a teenager), pieces by Herbert Howells and others straight out of the English cathedral tradition and three carols by Calvin Bowman.

For total contrast there are some exceptional discoveries from Central and South America including carols in indigenous languages, and pieces with such rhythmic excitement it is hard to believe they were written in the 17th century!
