In Winter’s House reaches across the ages, from the eternal beauty of the Tudor church right up to the twenty-first century, with each piece chosen to evoke a sense of mystery and joy. In this eclectic programme, The Gesualdo Six aim to add an international flavour to your Christmas celebrations, showing the true, universal nature of this special time of year.
