Choral Holiday - A Ceremony of Carols
Presented by Boston Choral Ensemble
December 14, 2013
For the fourth annual Choral Holiday, BCE updates the traditional Lessons and Carols service with repertoire both old and new, including Paul Ayre’s reimagining of Handel’s “For unto us a child is born,” several works by Benjamin Britten to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth (including the ever-popular “Ceremony of Carols”), carols by Poston, Rutter, Tavener and others, and carols for congregation accompanied on the church’s world-famous organ. Selected seasonal readings complement the holiday program.
