Britten: A Ceremony Of Carols / Clare College, Ros
Label: harmonia mundi
Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, Graham Ross
It’s Christmas. Graham Ross invites you to explore the highly individual conception of traditional carols offered by Twentieth Century British composers and, notably, the most eminent among them, Benjamin Britten. Arranged around his famous Ceremony of Carols is a selection of wonderful choral pieces with or without organ, each of which testifies in its own way to the meticulous care Britten brought to these musical gems, most of them deriving from English folk tradition.
