Musical characters at Lydians’ ‘Deo Gratias’

This Christmas the Lydians say, Deo Gratias (‘Thanks be to God’ in Latin).

At their 40th anniversary Christmas concert, which takes place from Thursday December 12 to Sunday 15 at Queen’s Hall, the Lydians are giving thanks to God for the music that has driven the organisation onward, for the musical directors who have shaped and inspired and for the goodwill, kindness and support of all who have helped them along the way.

In this year’s Christmas story, the Lydians will be visited by three special characters, the Lydian Musical Muses, ‘La Madame’, ‘La Reine’ and ‘La Belle Nouvelle’. These costumed, special guests are all Lydian music from the past through the present and to future, personifying the songs that have been sung, played and presented through the years.
