Programme Note


The Brandenburg Choral Festival of London welcomes back the Ariel Consort of London to the Autumn Series. This delightful programme will feature three contrasting settings of ‘O Magnum Mysterium’, a responsorial chant from the Matins of Christmas. These will be framed by two of Britten’s masterpieces for choir, ‘A Hymn to St Cecilia’ and ‘A Ceremony of Carols’.

This concert will last approximately one hour without an interval.

A combined ticket offer is available for this concert and the later performance at St Mary-le-Bow. Please contact the box office for details.
