As winter thickens and darkness descends, let this be our shining gift to you: a smorgasboard of glittering Renaissance, Baroque, 20th- and 21st-centuiry jewels to ring and resonate through the night.  Our much-loved advent tour pairs glowing candles and atmospheric venues with music of hidden depths, spiritual solace, meditative reflection and warm midwinter comfort.  Always delivering a few extra gifts, this year we bring you the dynamic, inimitable vocal ensemble I Fagiolini, with seven singers joining us for a mesmerising evening of sound and light.
