Be More Musical: Medieval Christmas

Medieval Christmas

After stripping away the Christmas No. 1 and the Doctor Who Christmas special, many of the long-standing Christmas traditions date right back to the medieval times and this December we are once more exploring some of those special musical traditions. St James Priory is the oldest building still in use in Bristol and has seen many Christmases come and go over the years so it will be the perfect setting to experience some of the timeless magic of Christmas. Ben England will be leading us through a number of traditional carols and plainchants that are perfect to get you in the Christmas mood. Some knowledge of reading musical notation would be useful but all are welcome!

Ben England has held a number of significant roles in choirs and music services in and around Bristol for the last 15 years. He is in demand as a freelance conductor, teacher and singer, and has a busy performaing schedule aroudn the south-west.
