“A Ceremony of Carols” – Holiday Concert
December 3 & 4
Sacramento Children’s Chorus with perform Ceremony of
Carols, one of Benjamin Britten’s best-known and
most-performed works. It is a brilliantly conceived and dramatic
concert work. The carols feature three-part children’s
voices and they form a two-part work around a central Interlude
for harp which is based on the plainsong from the Procession.
Variety is the key word here as all the carols have such individual identities. The forthright Wolcum Yole!, the deliciously lyrical There is no Rose, the swinging Balulalow, the fiery and dramatic This little Babe all contribute to a work which is a feast of discovery throughout.
