The program includes seminal works by Franz Liszt and Maurice Ravel. "With this program, I wanted to show both the angelic and demonic sides of each of these piano giants," says François-Xavier Poizat. "Two devilish dances - Liszt's Mephisto Waltz, No. 1 and Ravel's La Valse - are contrasted by an excerpt from the angelic Années de Pélerinage by Liszt and Tombeau de Couperin by Ravel."

At the heart of Londinium's festive programme is 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 are 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 is capped by John Rutter's superb 'Hymn to the Creator of Light', a musical tribute to Howells.

Puer natus est nobis

Orlando Chamber Choir
Oliver John Ruthven, director
Graham Thorpe, organ

Byrd: Rorate caeli desuper
Willcocks: While shepherds watched their flocks
Ord: Adam lay ybounden
Tallis: Missa Puer natus est nobis
Byrd: Domine, praestolamur adventum tuum
Jacques: Away in a manger
Parsons: Ave Maria
Britten: A Hymn to the Virgin
Vaughan Williams: No sad thought his soul affright
Vaughan Williams: O little town of Bethlehem
Ruthven: Coventry Carole
Ruthven: O my deir hert
Byrd: Ecce virgo concipiet
Willcocks: God rest you merry, gentlemen
Byrd: Puer natus est nobis

At the heart of Orlando Chamber Choir's Christmas concert is Thomas Tallis' large-scale Missa Puer natus est nobis, based on the festive plainchant of the same title. The choice of this particular Latin text suggests that the mass was written during the reign of Queen Mary, and the seven-part scoring indicates that Tallis had more extensive forces at his disposal than just the English Chapel Royal. This all points to a first performance in December 1554 when Spanish King Philip, Mary's husband, was in England with his Capilla Flaminca. It is likely that the rich and sonorous Missa Puer natus est nobis ("Onto us a boy is born") was also meant to celebrate that Queen Mary was thought to be pregnant at the time, and hoping for an heir.

Tallis' magnificent mass is interspersed with Advent music from William Byrd's “Gradualia” (1605), written to provide the recusant Catholic community with settings of the Mass Propers. Each of Byrd’s compositions is a small shining jewel of musical inventiveness and text characterisation. The Christmas constellation is completed by music from Tudor times to modern day, including Robert Parsons' exquisite Ave Maria and works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Boris Ord, Benjamin Britten and Malcolm Ruthven...

...but the stars of Orlando Chamber Choir's Christmas concerts are invariably the audience when they join in with the traditional carols! There will be festive readings too - with wine, mince pies and an interval raffle to complete this all-sensory Christmas evening.
