Arab Christmas

7 January '20 at 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

A very rare opportunity to experience the atmosphere of Christmas in the Arab world as St Martin-in-the-Fields gently lit by candles to hear Syriac, Coptic and Byzantine chants, harking back to the time of Queen Zanubia’s Palmyra in the second century CE.

The sound world of these chants is rich with quarter tones and virtuosic ornamentation.

The full programme of the line up of local and international artists and participants will b be announced soon!

Arab Christmas is produced by Arts Canteen and supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
