With special thanks to The Honorable Society of the Middle Temple, The Honorable Society of the Inner Temple and Lark Music for their generous support of the Temple Winter Festival



Based around four contemporary a cappella settings of the text of the Magnificat, ORA Singers presents a typically inventive programme juxtaposing music from previous ages with modern classics. Music in honour of the Virgin Mary sits alongside material celebrating the wonder and joy of the birth of Jesus. Listen to this exceptional ensemble giving their own take on the Christmas story with choral works ranging from the sublimely still to the riotously energetic.
