"CHRISTMAS WITH CANTABILE"
(with optional piano)
The sound of Cantabile is synonymous with Christmas. They provide the purest choral sound combined with side-splitting comedy in music: Carol - the Christmas story told by stringing together some favourites; only 2 minutes long, so only 28 carols could be included ..; Coventry Carol - a beautiful 16th Century part-song (no jokes!); The Christmas Song - Mel Torme's classic, in a cosy chestnut-roasting jazz version; The Twelve Days of Christmas as never heard before (have you ever imagined the noise all those 12 days' worth of gifts must have made..?!); Silent Night -the definitive sound of Christmas from the definitive Christmas Entertainers.
