Christmas Carol Concert

We are very sad and disappointed to announce that, due to the latest Covid restrictions and our own concern for visitor and resident safety, we have decided not to invite the public in for our special Christmas Carol Concert in our Chapel.

However we are going ahead with the Carol Concert and giving everyone the opportunity to join us online! The wonderful Pegasus Choir will be there as will our readers, including ‘Call the Midwife’ star Jenny Agutter, plus acclaimed historian and writer Tracy Borman, and Brother Mansel David. Some of the Brothers will attend in the Chapel.  If you made a booking to come in person you should have received an email from us (please contact museum@thecharterhouse.org if not).  We hope you will decide to join our online audience.

If you haven’t yet booked to join us for the virtual concert there is still time to do so –  it is free, but we would very much appreciate a donation to the charity.   Advance booking only – book your tickets here.  Thank you to The Drapers’ Company for their kind support.

Preludes & Vollenteries 23: ‘I am falling’

International violin soloist Peter Sheppard Skærved is bringing his concert series, inspired by the ancient churches of London’s Square Mile, to our Chapel here at the Charterhouse. Playing violin and viola, Peter will be performing works by Tobias Hume (1579 – 1645)
Thomas Baltzar (1630-1661), Anthony Poole (c.1629-1692), and a new piece by young Swedish composer David Riebe inspired directly by the early history of Charterhouse Square.

The programme is an imaginary meeting between three string players who worked, played and died in the city in the 1600s. The extraordinary figure of gamba composer and virtuoso Captain Tobias Hume provides inspiration for the programme, who spent the last 13 year of his life as a ‘poor brother’ here at the Charterhouse, and was buried here.
Tickets £10, (£5 concessions) on the door
