Description

Join choral group VOX Cape Town as they celebrate “Christmas in Africa under a Southern sky” – a locally-flavoured adaptation of the famous Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. This year, folk carols from Spain and Poland are presented alongside well-known Christmas songs by Peter Warlock, Francis Poulenc and Arvo Pärt, and congregational favourites such as “Once in Royal David’s City” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”. This year’s Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols will also feature the première of a new South African carol specially commissioned by VOX entitled “Christmas in Africa”.
