Light Eternal

In a program of exhilarating sacred music, this first concert of The Tudor Choristers’ 57th Season features Morten Lauridsen’s breathtaking Lux Aeterna, part of which was heard at Sing Nowell! in December last year. We return once again to perform in the vibrant acoustic space of the intimate Xavier College Chapel. (Hint: the Chapel was full at last year’s concert, so buy your tickets early!)

Of Les Chansons Des Roses, Bryon Adams (Hyperion Records) wrote: "Lauridsen translates the poet’s love for roses into rapturous music that entwines its way throughout the trellis of the listener’s memory”.

Sing Nowell!

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols (est. 1918), as well as the 40th anniversary of The Tudor Choristers’ own Christmas concerts (est. 1978)

Enjoy a program based on the choir's very first Christmas program, Carols at Kings, as we pay musical tribute to the century-old tradition of King's College, Cambridge. In the words of our founder, maestro David Carolane OAM, “this is a recital of Christmas carols for those who love the music of Christmas…hear the recital in the spirit in which it is offered—beautiful music for the appreciation of all”.
