A Ceremony of Carols – Castlemaine

Concert or Performance

27 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

Douglas Lawrence directs the internationally acclaimed Australian Chamber Choir in ‘A Ceremony of Carols’. A Ceremony of Carols within a ceremony of carols, Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece for choir and harp in the first half of the program is complemented by Renaissance settings of some of the same texts in the second half. The result is a kind of infinity mirror that casts new light on the texts of Britten’s famous cycle. The program contrasts well-known carols such as the Ukrainian Bell Carol, In Dulci Jubilo and Angels we have heard on high with little-known examples of beauty, serenity and elegance from the ACC’s Baroque Christmas CD.
