Description

"Of one that is so fair and bright"

The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and their director Graham Ross present a sumptuous Christmas programme in praise of the Virgin Mary and the coming of the light. Renaissance masterpieces, including Tallis's sublime 'Videte miraculum’ and Hieronymus Praetorius’s Christmas Magnificat (performed with its original interpolated carols) sit alongside more recent much-loved seasonal works, including motets by Howells, Britten, Tavener, Rutter and Ross, and some highly-catchy arrangements guaranteed to put you in the festive mood. A perfect start to the Christmas season.

Since the founding of a mixed voice choir in 1972, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the world’s leading university choirs. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the Choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing. Former directors have included John Rutter and Timothy Brown. Under the direction of Graham Ross, Director of Music since 2010, it has been praised for its consistently ‘thrilling’ and ‘outstanding’ performances worldwide.
