A programme of seasonal words and choral music that is both atmospheric and entertaining – from celebrations of Christmases long past to the present day. The Southwell Festival Voices will be conducted by Artistic Director Marcus Farnsworth.
This year there will be a special focus on the music of 20th century English composer Herbert Howells, including his evocative and well-known carols ‘A Spotless Rose’, ‘Here is the little door’ and ‘Long, long ago’.
This seasonal music will be complemented by evocative readings of poetry and prose and we’re pleased to welcome back actor Clive Mantle to Southwell Minster to be our reader for the evening.
