Nowell Sing We

At the heart of Londinium's festive programme was Thomas Tallis' Missa Puer natus est nobis, a sumptuous Christmas Mass probably composed for the joint choirs of the English and Spanish Chapels Royal, and first performed for Queen Mary and King Philip II of Spain at Christmas 1554. Interspersed between its movements were fine recent carols by Francis Pott, Jonathan Dove, Peter Maxwell Davies, Cecilia McDowall, Gabriel Jackson, and Adrian Peacock, alongside classic festive works by Peter Warlock and Herbert Howells. This vibrant and diverse selection of music was capped by John Rutter's superb Hymn to the Creator of Light, a musical tribute to Howells.

Thomas Tallis: Gloria from Missa Puer natus est nobis
Francis Pott: Balulalow
Jonathan Dove: Wellcome, All Wonders In One Sight
Herbert Howells: Sing Lullaby
John Rutter: Hymn to the Creator of Light

Peter Warlock: Bethlehem Down
