The Wallace Collection will be hosting a wonderful evening of Christmas carols with Alex Woolf and the Vox Luna Chamber Choir inside their Great Gallery. You'll also get a pre-concert glass of mulled wine and mince pie.

The Vox Luna Chamber Choir is one of the country's most exciting new vocal groups, and they'll be performing many of your festive favourites alongside some seasonal masterpieces by Rachmaninov, Britten, Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre and John Rutter.

Alex Woolf has worked with many great choirs during his career, including the Tallis Scholars, Bach Choir, and the Choir of St John's College, Cambridge.

Performers:

John Rutter is a British conductor, composer and arranger of mainly choral pieces. He has written many religious works, including a recent piece for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

First established in 1875, the Bach Choir has long been regarded as one of the world’s leading choruses. The choir’s musical director is currently David Hill, who occupies a spot once held by the great English composer Vaughan Williams.
