LIVE From London - Christmas
Brought straight to your hearts and homes by the VOCES8 Foundation, LIVE From London – Christmas presents a sackful of musical treats to grace your screens for the holiday season. Featuring a starry line-up from the UK, the US and across Europe, the festival also supports the VOCES8 Foundation’s global message of music education for all by gifting young performers from across the world a stage for their singing.
VERSA will be featuring on the 13th of December alongside Take 6 & London Adventist Chorale.
The internationally renowned line-up includes hosts VOCES8, with vocal groups The Tallis Scholars, Take 6, I Fagiolini, London Adventist Chorale, Anúna, Amarcord, The Aeolians, and Apollo5.
The Gabrieli Consort & Players directed by Paul McCreesh present a stunning line-up of soloists in Bach For Christmas filmed at St John’s Smith Square, London. The six Christmas Oratorio cantatas, will each be broadcast on the day for which they were liturgically written.
