Make we Joye in this Fest

NCEM, York Y01 9TL


Old English and European music and song for the festive season.

A musical journey through the seasonal celebrations of medieval and renaissance Europe. The programme starts at home with a selection from the rich source of 15th-century English carols, including works from Yorkshire manuscripts. We move to the uplifting chorales of Lutheran Germany, before travelling to the wonderfully simple and atmospheric noels, folk songs and dances from the Mediterranean.
