The Twelve Days of Christmas pairs the days and their associated gifts of the much-loved carol with beautiful music from across the centuries. Under the direction of Sam Allchurch for the first time, the Sydney Children’s Choir will perform the music of Benjamin Britten and William Mathias, alongside new music by Sally Whitwell and Joseph Twist as well as other loved Christmas songs. The choir is joined by the Voices of Angels orchestra, led by Helena Rathbone.
