Time Out says
Now, this is how you do a Christmas concert. Get yourself down to St James’ Piccadilly for some unforgettable festive tunes in an atmospheric setting. You’ll get to soak up the majesty of ‘Handel's Messiah’ at Christmas, by candlelight. This show on December 22 will feature Piccadilly Sinfonietta and soprano Susan Parkes, with a few dashes of Bach and Corelli to keep things interesting. In the same setting, you’ve got ‘The Lark Ascending’ on December 27 (a perfect hangover cure, if you ask us) from Piccadilly Sinfonietta once again. This time, they’ll be joined by pianist Warren Mailley-Smith for Chopin's outstanding ‘2nd piano concert’. There really isn’t a better way to get into the festive spirit.
