Join us for this very special performance by the Madeleine Choir School here at St. Mary’s! Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols is a masterpiece composed on board a ship during a perilous five-week crossing of the North Atlantic in World War II as Britten returned to England from the United States in 1942. It is an unusual setting for treble voices and harp, and the “carols” are largely the product of 15th and 16th century writers, mostly anonymous. The work opens and closes with the choir processing to plain song, the Hodie chant sung for centuries at Vespers on Christmas Day, and the carol settings in between deal with the traditional stories surrounding the birth of Christ. Come and hear this beautiful performance and enjoy coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies!
