How brightly shines the Morning Star
Our programme focuses on virtuosic baroque composers who were inspired to write some of the most striking music that exists for organ and violin on the theme of the Nativity.
Christmas in baroque times was a festival of light in both Italian and German-speaking lands, with hundreds of candles being lit in churches during the dark, cold months of winter.
Join us as we bring forth the light that these festivities traditionally brought to its people – through the luminous music of composers ranging from Frescobaldi to Tartini.
Available to watch on demand until 6 January 2021
