GreenMatthews
A Brief History of Christmas
600 Years of Yuletide Songs, Carols, Tunes and Tales

Acclaimed musicians GreenMatthews (with special guest Jude Rees of Pilgrims’ Way) present a festive romp through 600 years of Christmas music, songs and carols.

Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending in the 20th century, ‘A Brief History of Christmas’ is a whistle-stop tour of the origins of our midwinter festivities. Featuring long-forgotten songs and tales as well as some familiar and well-loved carols, ‘A Brief History of Christmas‘ is a show guaranteed to delight the hearts of young and old.

The show takes in 600 years of music – featuring music and songs played on archaic instruments such as cittern, shawm and rauschpfeife, as well as more familiar instruments such as guitar, flute, oboe and accordion – all helped along by GreenMatthews‘ trademark wit and humour.

‘A Brief History of Christmas‘ is the perfect show for anyone looking to recapture the simple Yuletide delights of fellowship, laughter and good cheer.

“Eclectic and enjoyable – a bewildering array of instruments” English Dance and Song

“You guys are awesome!” Bill Barclay, Director of Music at Shakespeare’s Globe
