Eboracum Baroque present a Christmas programme featuring Benjamin Britten’s glittering Ceremony of Carols for upper voice and harp. Enjoy mulled wine and mince pies and hear a selection of other christmas favourites sung by some of the best young voices in the UK.
Britten’s Ceremony of Carols is a selection of movements set to a middle english text. Originally written in 1942 when Britten was on voyage returning from the USA, the upper voice vocal writing and harp complement each other perfectly.
Eboracum Baroque provide a performance platform for recent graduates from the top music institutions in the UK including the Royal College of Music and the University of York. The group has performed all across the UK including in the Ryedale Festival and Grimeborn Opera Festival and were recently described as ‘some of the most promising young singers and musicians around today.’ - Music OMH
