Enjoy her jazzy execution of The Wexford Carol alongside the ethereal Coventry Carol. Katherine Hunka and ICO swing into season with Sibelius’ Andante Festivo, a taster from Handel’s festive Concerti Grossi Op. 6 before setting the scene for Winter from Vivaldi’s popular Four Seasons. Muireann’s rendition of Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas and a final Christmas tune from ICO will close out a magical evening!
