  • INFO

In the vast, echoing space of their medieval home the boys and men of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum celebrate the awe and mystery of Christmas, ushering in the birth of the Christ-child with a sequence of carols from the last two centuries that combines familiar names with offerings from some of today’s foremost composers.

"...the boys sing with sonorous and rounded tone. Rarely can the choir have sounded on better form than they do here"

ORGANISTS' REVIEW

 

"I doubt whether there are many more admirable choirs outside Westminster, Oxford and Cambridge than the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum…Nicholas’s choir give proof yet again of the qualities that place
them firmly in the front rank: f
lair, acumen, versatility and poise"
