Benjamin Britten, Westminster Abbey Choir , Martin Neary (2) ‎– A Ceremony Of Carols. Label: Sony Classical ‎– SK 62615. Country: US. Released: 1997. Canticle Ii: Abraham And Isaac, Op. 51. A Ceremony Of Carols, Op. 28. 3. Procession.

The works chosen for this album, ranging from 'A Ceremony of Carols' to 'Abraham and Isaac', all reflect, in their different ways,Britten's unique ability to capture an astonishing variety of moods through, as it were, the eyes of the innocent. A Ceremony of Carols' is much more than just a random selection of mediaeval texts, and displays perfectly Britten's flair for writing for boys' voices.

A Ceremony of Carols (Westminster Abbey Choir; Martin Neary, Di. 28: As dew in Aprille. 28: As dew in Aprille Benjamin Britten.

Performer: Westminster Abbey Choir/Martin Neary. This all-Britten collection surrounds the familiar Ceremony of Carols – surely the most affecting anthology of its kind ever composed – with less familiar items like the Wedding Anthem for Lord Harewood and Marion Stein (now Thorpe) and the Christopher Smart setting Rejoice in the Lamb, plus a guest performance, as it were, of Canticle II: Abraham and Isaac with its other-worldly opening. for unison alto and tenor (Michael Chance and Ian Bostridge) as the Voice of God – worth a million dollars, as BB himself confided to Tippett. Neary and the Westminster Choir are going to be heard a lot this.

A Ceremony of Carols, Op. 28, is a choral piece by Benjamin Britten, scored for three-part treble chorus, solo voices, and harp. The text is principally in Middle English, with some Latin and Early Modern English. The piece was written in 1942 while Britten was at sea, travelling from the United States to England.
