Britten’s wonderful Ceremony of Carols combines sacred and secular texts of a seasonal flavour. His inimitable setting of these medieval texts for high voices and harp is wonderfully sung by the Girl Choristers of Southwell Minster, combined with seasonal readings.
Sandwiches (£2) and hot and cold drinks (£1) are available from 11.45am in the South Transept before each concert. The concerts start at 12.15pm and are approximately 45 minutes long.
Entry is not ticketed; however, early arrival is advised.
Entry is free with a retiring collection, proceeds of which help to fund the Minster’s organ scholarship.
