    Christmas Baroque & Carols PROGRAMME

    In this year's seasonal offering, EBC puts its best Baroque foot forward: Durante's

    Magnificat, a Christmas cantata by Bach's boyhood hero, Buxtehude, and a sparkling

    setting of In Dulci Jubilo by Scheidt all feature accompaniment by a specially invited

    string group. Further festive fayre includes music by Sweelinck, Gabrieli, Praetorius

    and Bach.

    More familiar second-half items include carols for everyone to sing. Our stirring finale

    is Vaughan Williams's much-loved Fantasia, for which EBC is delighted to welcome

    back baritone soloist Bruce Russell.

    Mulled wine and mince pies are also on the menu Christmas starts here!
