“Utterly Captivating” Ceremony of Carols

The Choristers of Wells Cathedral put on their annual performance of Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols on Saturday 4 February, in aid of the Wells Cathedral Chorister Trust. The concert was attended by several hundred people who filled the Nave, and ended with a standing ovation for the performers.

The Choristers had put in a lot of hard work rehearsing for the concert, on top of their regular service schedule, and this dedication was evident in the quality of their outstanding singing. The soloists – Oliver, Aleksei, Belinda, Rosie, Beatrice, Petra, and Estella – performed exceptionally well.

The concert was conducted by Alexander Hamilton, who did a fabulous job, and the harp was played beautifully by Ruth Faber. Grateful thanks were given to the Wells Cathedral Chorister Trust, who organised the event.

Overall, the performance was described as “utterly captivating” and huge congratulations were given to all of the Choristers, who did themselves proud with their brilliant performance. The Wells Cathedral Choristers are already looking forward to their next performance in 2024.
