About A Ceremony of Carols

A programme of Christmas music by vOx Chamber Choir, including the choral masterpiece A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten

David Crown, conductor
Jenny Broome, harp

Written on his return home across the Atlantic from exile in the States in 1942, Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols was set for children’s chorus, receiving its Wigmore Hall premiere in December 1943.

That year Britten also made a setting for SATB in which he skillfully manages to retain the sense of childhood innocence created in the original setting.

This choral masterpiece will form part of an evening of seasonal music given by this leading Oxford a cappella group.
