What sweeter music: Online broadcast for Abbey Christmas concert
Tuesday, 1st December 2020
Westminster Abbey’s traditional Christmas concert will be broadcast to audiences around the world as the Abbey Choir performs as part of the Live from London – Christmas festival.
The concert, What sweeter music, will be broadcast online at 7.00pm on Tuesday 15th December and ticket holders will be able to tune in live and/or on demand at any time from the date of broadcast until 15th January.
Taking its inspiration from the traditional Festival of Lessons and Carols, the concert programme combines an enticing selection of seasonal choral music, much-loved carols and biblical readings telling the story of Christmas. Harpist Sally Pryce and broadcaster Catherine Bott joined the Abbey musicians for the performance, which was recorded ‘as live’ in the Abbey earlier this month with former Abbey choristers Barnaby and Paul Smith (respectively Artistic Director and CEO of the Festival) behind the cameras.
