What was a European Christmas like 400 years ago? What were the popular Christmas songs? What did the musical instruments sound like?
Through the wonderful music of the time, we'll transport you back to a Christmas long ago. Your musical journey will include the joyful Christmas story as well as the good cheer and merriment associated with wassailing parties and New Year's celebrations - all provided by some of the most gifted composers of the day.
Experience the Holidays as never before!
