Choral Evensong featuring Britten’s Ceremony of Carols

Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir sings Britten’s 1942 unearthly collection of settings from medieval and sixteenth-century carol texts.

They sing to a harp accompaniment from Anne Denholm, Official Harpist to the Prince of Wales (2015-19), and enclose the carols, beginning and end, by plainsong which celebrates Christ’s incarnation, ‘Hodie Christus Natus Est’.

Today Christ is born, today the Saviour appears; today the angels sing on earth, the archangels rejoice. Today the just exult, saying ‘Glory to God in the Highest, alleluia!’

The event is finished.
