Ensemble Gombert: Christmas to Candlemas

December 5, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Ensemble Gombert presents Christmas to Candlemas: A Jacobean celebration with viols and organ

With guest artists: Consort Eclectus


William ByrdThis day Christ was born
O God that guides the cheerful sun
Orlando GibbonsThis is the record of John
See, see the Word is incarnate
John BullAlmighty God, who by the leading of a star
Thomas WeelkesGloria, in excelsis Deo
Thomas TomkinsBehold, I bring you glad tidings


Performance of anthems with viols has been on our wish list for some years. Now that it is to become a reality it is impossible not to anticipate our Christmas to Candlemas season a bit in order to include that favourite Advent anthem, Gibbons’ This is the record of John. For that matter the other Gibbons piece, See, see the Word is incarnate also transcends the temporal limits, subsequently taking us through Passion, Resurrection and Ascension, but it begins with the Incarnation.

This is truly a rare opportunity to hear many of these works.
