Three centuries of Russian choral gems.
Costanzi Consort explore their first Russian Christmas with a programme of deeply atmospheric choral works, moving through three centuries of tradition from the era of Peter the Great to the Russian Revolution of 1917. Much of the Russian seventeenth and eighteenth-century choral repertory is little known in the West, so this will be a rare chance for North Somerset concert-goers to be transported to the courtly opulence of the Imperial Chapel of the Tsars.
