La Nova Singers present an afternoon of joyful Christmas music in celebration of the festive season. The library of Merley House will resound with carols old and new, including ‘The Angel Gabriel’ and ‘O Holy Night’; plus music by John Rutter, Ola Gjeilo and Herbert Howells.
The all-female ensemble will be conducted by their musical director Michelle Nova, and accompanied on piano by Simon Giliver.
