I had such a wonderful time in London. One of the special things I saw was Carols by Candlelight at the Royal Albert Hall.
The orchestra was dressed in 17th century costumes. With readings of Charles Dickens and music from Vivaldi, it was a beautiful evening.
Herald the Christmas season with this exquisite concert of carols and seasonal classics performed by the UK’s most elegant orchestra, staged in full 18th Century costume in an evocative candle-lit style setting.
Handel Zadok the Priest, Let the Bright Seraphim
Mozart Laudate Dominum
Corelli Allegro and Pastorale from Christmas Concerto
Handel Christmas sequence from Messiah
Bach Air on the G String, Sleepers, Awake
Gruber Silent Night
Vivaldi Gloria (first movement)
… and carols for all including:
The First Nowell
Good King Wenceslas
O come, all ye faithful
While shepherds watched
Once in royal David’s city
Hark! the Herald angels sing
And readings from Dickens and the Scriptures by special guest Julian Rhind-Tutt
Mozart Festival Chorus
Mozart Festival Orchestra in full period costume
