A Ceremony of Carols with Granta Chorale in Cambridge

All Saints' Church, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
17th December 2022
£5.00 - £15.00

Granta Chorale present a Christmas programme, including carols for the audience to join in.

Britten's Ceremony of Carols forms the centrepiece of a programme which brings together many favourite carols with newly written festive music. Full of tongue-twisters, evocative incantations and harp glissandi, this piece - composed on a ship crossing from the USA to England in April 1942 - has become one of Britten's most well-known, and well-loved, works. Granta Chorale will be joined for this, and other works, by harpist Rohan Platts.

The programme will include:

  • Benjamin Britten - A Ceremony of Carols
  • Bob Chilcott - The Rose in the Middle of Winter
  • Cecilia McDowall - Now May We Singen
  • Janet Wheeler - New Work (premiere)
  • Sarah Cattley - New Work (premiere)
  • and carols for audience participation

Doors will open at 6:30 pm, and the bar will have mulled wine and mince pies before the concert and during the half hour interval.
