Singing a song of Christmas
NOTHING says Christmas more than Gloucester Cathedral's choirboys in full voice.
On Sunday, December 9, they will be singing Britten's A Ceremony of Carols, accompanied by harpist Eluned Pierce.
Last year, the boys performed to a packed audience in the Lady Chapel with standing room only. Following the performance, a retired senior clergyman wrote to say that during the concert he "felt as close to Heaven as (he'd) ever experienced".
So you're in for a treat.

A Ceremony of Carols is a setting of texts in Middle English for boys and harp. The work opens and ends with the choristers in candlelit procession to plainsong. Sections in between deal with the birth of Christ.
