I used a bit of editorial licence on the photos that accompany the music tracks. None of them were taken at the concert and mostly come from a photograph of the choir and orchestra about 18 months later when they were rehearsing for a performance of Bach's St John Passion. However, many of the participants in that concert will also have been in the earlier Christmas Concert.
