Celebrating their 25th Anniversary year in true Mediaeval Baebes style; the classical chart-topping choir will be weaving its story-telling magic once again this Christmas. Traditionally a time for reflection and celebration; tickets for this remarkable evening of music, dance and theatre, on Monday 20th December at St Mary’s Church in Horsham, are now on sale.
Accompanied by a dazzling array of exotic and period instruments; carols, traditional folksongs, and innovative settings of ancient and romantic poetry will be revealed in a spirited performance of beguiling choral music. For this Silver Jubilee celebration, the band will premiere compositions from their latest album of ethereal plainsong ‘Prayers of the Rosary’, alongside exciting new arrangements of Christmas favourites.
When a group of friends broke into a graveyard 25 years ago to sing mediæval songs and make merry; no one could have predicted the epic journey they were embarking on. Over a quarter of a century later, the Mediaeval Baebes have released 10 studio albums and won an Ivor Novella Award for their performance on the BBC serialization ‘The Virgin Queen.’ They have also received 2 Emmy nominations, and a Royal Television Society award alongside composer Martin Phipps, for their soundtrack to ITV’s hit period drama, ‘Victoria.’
Established as one of the most successful female-led, early music and folk ensembles in Europe; their lush, ethereal harmonies will transport the listener through a myriad of ancient and forgotten languages.
Come join the Mediaeval Baebes, as they enchant and uplift their audiences once again with a glorious Christmas time celebration. Tickets are now available from www.mediaevalbaebes.com at a cost of £25 each.
