Countertenor Joe Levy and pianist Peter Adcock are performing Christmas music in a series of concerts at venues including Emmanuel Hall in St Thomas on Saturday 9 December.
An English History of Christmas is a programme of songs spanning the medieval period to the 20th century. It includes familiar carols as well as less well-known festive music.
Joe Levy offers audiences insight into the atmosphere surrounding each piece of music by weaving history and storytelling into his performances.
He has a passion for Baroque and early music, performing Purcell and Handel alongside medieval hymns in Middle English and 17th century folk songs.
