Christmas Music by Candlelight

Join us for this memorable concert of seasonal music with The Carolean Consort on Wednesday 21 December. 

The Carolean Consort is a West Country ensemble of professional young musicians who have acquired national and international reputations in the field of baroque music.

Making their debut with Bath Recitals they will present a Christmas concert with music from Baroque masters including excerpts from Handel’s Messiah.

Some terrific instrumental sonatas by Baroque masters Telemann and Vivaldi will also feature in this varied and colourful programme:

Also included will be a sparkling harpsichord concerto by Thomas Chilcot, organist at Bath Abbey in fashionable 18th century Bath and where he played a highly influential role in the city for forty years.

Some lovely 20th century carols will also be performed by composers Peter Warlock, Michael Head and Bath Recitals’ President, Tom Clarke.

Don’t miss this unusual, candlelit Christmas concert in the stunning setting of St Michael’s Church in the centre of the city.

Tickets are available online or in person from the cafe at St Michael’s Church during opening hours.
