To celebrate this, Gloriana presents a selection of Britten’s best-loved Christmas music.
A Ceremony of Carols combines traditional carol texts with the unique and beguiling sound-world of harp and high voices.
A Boy Was Born was composed when Britten was only nineteen, yet it makes virtuoso demands on the singers and also features his sublime setting of the Corpus Christi Carol.
A Hymn to the Virgin is one of Britten’s most enduring choral works and Christ’s Nativity is a rarely performed gem.
In the superb acoustics of Sacred Heart in Carlton, this programme will be a thrilling and heart-warming experience. Don’t miss out.
