Town Hall, Birmingham

1617 A Brazilian Christmas

Ex Cathedra Consort & Baroque Orchestra
Jeffrey Skidmore


Palm trees gently swaying in the cooling sea breeze, the snowy-white waves of the Atlantic Ocean caressing the golden sands of Ipanema. Christmas in the sun has its attractions! Join us to start your festive season with a programme of intoxicating, sunshine-imbued music from Brazil.



Following the popular and critical acclaim of our Brazilian Adventures CD, we return to the music of this vast, enchanting country, with a programme of elegant music from Ouro Preto, including a major, seasonal work by one of Brazil’s most important 18th-century composers: Nunes Garcia.


Nunes Garcia Missa Pastoril
