Watch December 24, 9:30pm
Duration: 110min
London’s Royal Albert Hall is the elegant setting for this exquisite concert of carols and seasonal classics performed by the Mozart Festival Orchestra and Chorus. Featuring the orchestra dressed in full 18th-century costume and filmed in an evocative candle-lit style, Carols by Candlelight includes performances of Mozart’s “Laudate Dominum”, Bach’s “Sleepers Awake” and Vivaldi’s “Gloria” (first movement). It wouldn’t be Christmas without a selection of carols and the Chorus offers beautiful renditions of “The First Noel”, “Good King Wenceslas” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”, among others. The evening also features actor Julian Rhind-Tutt who gives readings from Dickens and the Scriptures.
