Showcasing a broad range of Christmas music, the Temple Singers join Temple Church Choir for a programme of music spanning five centuries, from 16th century works by Lassus and Sweelinck, through evocative motets by Poulenc and Lauridsen all the way to 21st century arrangements by one of their own singers, Jonathan Darbourne. Greg Morris will help to usher in the Christmas season with organ music by Bach and Messiaen.
