Our online festival returns with a snow-dusted selection of your favourite holiday pieces, filmed live from VOCES8’s stunning church in the heart of the city and from venues across the world.

“Be prepared to be blown away by VOCES8’s online choral festival Live from London.” ★★★★— Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph

Brought straight to your hearts and homes by the VOCES8 Foundation, Live From London – Christmas  presents a sackful of musical treats to grace your screens for the holiday season.  Featuring a starry line-up from the UK, the US and across Europe, the festival also supports the VOCES8 Foundation’s global message of music education for all  by gifting young ensembles from across the world a stage for their singing.  

The festival features six new commissions from Ken Burton, Melissa Dunphy, Jocelyn Hagen, Taylor Scott Davis, Paul Smith, Roderick Williams, and repertoire ranging from Bach, Praetorius, Eccard, Charpentier and Tallis, to Howells, Britten, Michael McGlynn, Pärt, Tavener, Ola Gjeilo and Eric Whitacre. We also welcome the Gabrieli Consort & Players directed by Paul McCreesh in Bach For Christmas . The ensemble and its stunning line-up of soloists (including Carolyn Sampson, Anna Dennis, Tim Mead and Ashley Riches) will perform Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, each on the day for which they were liturgically written. All filmed in ultra high definition and featuring your favourite seasonal a cappella -  Live From London is ‘all you want for Christmas’.

Broadcast at 2pm EST | 7pm GMT, ticket-holders will be able to tune in live and/or on demand from the date of broadcast until 12pm GMT on 15th January.  Each broadcast concert lasts 60 minutes.  Purchase one of our season tickets now, or buy access to each concert individually.
