All This Time This Song is Best
directed by Heather Moger
12.30pm - c.1.30pm (NCEM Patrons free of charge)

The Minster Minstrels are joined by singers directed by BBC Music Fellow Bethany Seymour in a polyptych of musical portraits depicting scenes from the Nativity. Our central panel, Hassler's polychoral Verbum caro factum est, is framed by a colourful array of Christmas pieces, including a setting of Joseph, lieber Joseph mein (Hieronymus Praetorius) and Buxtehude's Cantata In Dulci Jubilo.

The Minster Minstrels is run as a partnership between the NCEM and York Arts Academy with support from the Mayfield Valley Arts Trust. If you are interested in joining this vibrant group – or our newly formed recorder ensemble for younger musicians – please contact us by e mailing
