Westminster Cathedral Choir
Martin Baker director

Founded in 1901, the world-famous Westminster Cathedral Choir has an international reputation for superb music-making and is unique in its daily performances of Renaissance polyphony and plainsong at Westminster Cathedral.

This programme presents a mixture of the choir’s traditional Advent repertoire with some contemporary Christmas favourites, along with the world premiere of a motet by Joanna Marsh, all centred on the text O magnum mysterium: a musical expression of the mystery of the incarnation – the arrival of Christ in the calm silence of the night.
