The Ebor Singers: A Ceremony of Carols

Book Tickets Online

About us

Few pieces capture the joy and expectation of Christmas quite as well as Britten's Ceremony of Carols. This striking setting in eleven movements is scored for upper voices and harp. Britten began work on his Ceremony of Carols in 1942, after three very successful years in America. On board a Swedish cargo vessel bound for Britain, dodging German U-boats, Britten set some medieval poems from a book he had come across while berthed in Nova Scotia.


Alongside Britten's sequence, The Ebor Singers will ready you for Christmas with a tasting tray of seasonal music, with an aperitif of medieval carols, a main course of popular song arrangements, a dessert of exotic contemporary sacred pieces, and a nightcap to include the audience!

The Ebor Singers will also have copies of their new CD available for sale at the concert, recorded with the Chelys Consort of Viols, which captures Christmas music from the English Civil War.
