Event description
Join women’s vocal ensemble La Nova Singers for a candlelit concert of exquisite Christmas music, featuring Britten’s ‘Ceremony of Carols’.

About this Event

Benjamin Britten’s ‘A Ceremony of Carols’ captures the joy and anticipation of the festive season, with spine-tingling vocal harmonies accompanied by harp. The lyrics are taken from a book of Medieval poems, which captivated the composer with their sense of mystery: songs include the celebratory ‘Wolcum Yule’; the gently meditative ‘There Is No Rose’ and the exhilarating ‘This Little Babe’.

Alongside ‘A Ceremony of Carols’, the singers will perform well-loved Christmas songs such as:

  • The First Mercy - Peter Warlock
  • The Shepherd’s Farewell - Berlioz
  • Silent Night
  • Angels From the Realms of Glory
  • Ding Dong! Merrily on High
  • The Angels’ Carol - John Rutter

La Nova Singers are joined by musicians Katie Salomon, on harp, and Sam Hanson on piano and organ.

Mulled wine and warm mince pies will be available to purchase in the interval, for the perfect seasonal evening out!

About the Venue

St Ambrose Church is a beautiful venue with the ideal acoustics for choral music. For this special Christmas concert, the building will be lit by hundreds of candles - combining with the music to create a magical festive atmosphere.

The venue is situated in the Westbourne area of Bournemouth, a warm and welcoming ‘coastal village’ with a thriving restaurant and café culture.

About the Choir

La Nova Singers have been enchanting audiences across the south for 15 years with their vocal beauty and flair for the dramatic. The thirteen women are conducted by Michelle Nova and trained individually in the ‘Bel Canto’ technique, which is what gives them their distinctive sound.
