The Ulster Consort: A Ceremony of Carols

About

The Ulster Consort presents A Ceremony of Carols, an extended choral composition for Christmas by Benjamin Britten, scored for three-part treble chorus, solo voices, and harp.

The Ulster Consort, which made its debut with a stellar, critically acclaimed performance of Handel's Messiah in December 2019, is Northern Ireland's newest professional music ensemble and one of the very few professional vocal ensembles in the province. Founded by the internationally renowned and now Belfast-based conductor, Matthew Owens, the large core of the Consort's membership consists of Northern Irish singers, and singers based in Northern Ireland.

Its energies are focused on the finest works of the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical periods – working with period instruments and in an historically informed manner – through to the glorious smaller-scaled works of the Romantic era and the 20th century.

The Ulster Consort presents A Ceremony of Carols, an extended choral composition for Christmas by Benjamin Britten, scored for three-part treble chorus, solo voices, and harp. The text is structured in eleven atmospheric movements and was composed in 1942 on Britten's sea voyage from the United States to England.

The perfect start to this festive season!
