Get into the Christmas spirit with a performance of Benjamin Britten's "Ceremony of Carols", performed by the Choristers of Westminster Abbey.

Britten's much-loved sequence of carols draws on a variety of medieval and early modern texts, and each of the twelve movements is a miniature masterpiece.

It will be preceded by a reading of The Christmas Proclamation.
