DBC - Gloria
Drakensberg Boys Choir School, Winterton, South Africa
A Christmas Celebration
In this musical instalment of our Christmas festival, the Drakensberg Boys Choir will join forces with the talented instrumentalists of Baroque 2000, the premier orchestra for ‘early music’ in South Africa. The highlight of this programme will be a full performance of the well-known and much loved GLORIA by Antonio Vivaldi, an Italian Baroque masterpiece. The rest of the concert will be a selection of Christmas Carols and popular Christmas Songs, including ‘Ding dong, merrily on high’, ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’, ‘God rest ye, merry gentlemen’ and ‘O, come all ye faithful’, all tied up in a new package with the signature Drakie-exuberance and complemented by the magnificent sound palette of Baroque 2000.
