Listen to ‘A Ceremony of Carols’

Salt Lake City’s Choir School performs Benjamin Britten’s, "A Ceremony of Carols" at Park City’s Santy Auditorium at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 23. Britten’s "A Ceremony of Carols" is a masterpiece composed on board ship during a perilous five-week crossing of the North Atlantic in World War II as Britten returned to England from the U.S.A. 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, most of whom are anonymous. The texts of these early carols celebrate the birth of Christ, and retain their unique flavor by Britten’s extensive use of the original old English language. The work opens and closes with the choir processing to the Hodie chant, sung for centuries at Vespers on Christmas Day. The Santy Audtorium is located at 1255 Park Ave.
The performance is free of admission and open to the public.
