Britten A Ceremony of Carols 23’
and seasonal music including Britten, Tavener, John Rutter and favourite traditional carols

‘Wolcum alle and make good cheer!’ From the air and water of his native Suffolk, Benjamin Britten crafted a musical Christmas celebration like no other: a garland of song, charged with the power of tradition and bright with the promise of renewal. His Ceremony of Carols is the wonderfully fitting heart of this carol concert with a difference, the vital link in a chain of seasonal music that stretches from Britten through familiar favourite carols and freshly-minted classics.
