In the gloomy sky of a winter's night a bright star emerges and ignites Advent's anticipation of the Nativity -the year moves towards the rebirth of light just at the time of greatest darkness. With evocative works by the Baroque master Dietrich Buxtehude and the circle of 17th-century northern German composers around him, Paul Hillier conducts his Grammy award-winning ensemble Theatre of Voices in a stimulating addition to the traditional Christmas repertoire. Theatre of Voices, widely recognized as one of the world's foremost vocal groups, was founded by Paul Hillier in 1990 and re-established in Denmark when he moved to that country in 2004. The group presents a wide range of contemporary music, often juxtaposed with elements of early music. Their programs feature many of today's most eminent composers - Berio, Part, Reich, Cage, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Stockhausen - while among their current favourite 'early' composers are Perotin, Dowland, and Buxtehude.
