Founded in 1980, the world-renowned vocal ensemble has concentrated on music from the medieval period, while also making occasional excursions into contemporary music. This concert is an early Christmas celebration, with carols and sections from masses by composers both known and anonymous and dating from the 12th to the 15th centuries.
