In the footsteps of nuns, monks and novices

A Christmas in keeping with 17th-century Dutch monastic tradition: in this programme Holland Baroque most certainly live up to their name. Supple female voices resound purely and effortlessly through the hall, bridging the distance to times long gone. We follow in the footsteps of nuns, monks and novices and imagine ourselves in a Baroque midnight Christmas mass. Withdraw into a world of monastic melody, framed by the silvery sound of violins, gambas, harps and Baroque opulence.
