The Carice Singers

Christmas with The Carice Singers

George Parris conductor   |   Adrian Moore organ

The Carice Singers have been making waves and they come back to Leamington for a third time at Christmas.

George Parris, having finished his studies in Helsinki, now has posts in Croatia, Finland and Portugal and will work with Ex Cathedra in 2022 as an Associate Conductor. He has chosen a beautifully balanced programme of favourites like Silent Night and O Come all ye faithful to works by living English composers, Victoria, Berlioz and Sibelius and other Finnish composers.

The Waits’ Wassail

Firm favourites in Warwick, The York Waits’ return is eagerly awaited!

The Waits celebrate the Festive Season with songs, carols and dances from across medieval and renaissance England and Europe, performed on loud and quiet wind consorts, bowed and plucked strings, and the rustic bagpipes and vielle.

The programme includes many well known favourites such as In dulci jubilo, Ther is no Rose, Noel Nouvelet, Quem Pastores, Ninna, nanna Dormi Figlio and The Waits’ Wassail.

The “grete noyse” of shawms and sackbuts will herald a sequence of atmospheric music that the Waits and Deborah Catterall have developed over many years of collaboration

Celebrate Yule effervescently with Joglaresa – and chase out the chill from the Celtic fringes of Europe – with traditional carols and wassails from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. With fidel, harp, bells, bagpipes and voices, Joglaresa ring in Christmas and New Year in this joyful programme of carols, lullabies, dance tunes and wassails.

Joglaresa’s cleverly imaginative programming transcends the limits of what is often thought of as early music. Directed by Belinda Sykes, this London-based ensemble have been playing since 1992, and made regular visits to Warwick over the years – they gave our last concert of 2020 before lockdown put paid to the rest of the season, and we are delighted to welcome them back.
