The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra has billed their Xmas program as ‘not just carols but an affirmation of life. Noel! Noel! is all about fusing the modern with the ancient, as the angelic voices of the Brandenburg choir combine with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra on period instruments to produce a sound that is simple, pure and completely joyous.
It’s Christmas with a twist – the serene beauty of strings, the gorgeous sound of soprano voices, medieval hymns infused with contemporary sounds and much more. Some music you will be intimately familiar with. Some you will hear for the very first time, including a stunning arrangement of The Wexford Carol, a traditional religious Irish Christmas carol originating from County Wexford. It will performed by the Brandenburg Choir and Orchestra whose program of ancient Celtic carols, Christmas songs, American classics and Brandenburg favourites such as Stille Nacht and O Come All Ye Faithful, will be sure to delight.
