A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten; Cantate Historia Nativitatis Domini Nostri Iesu Christi by Kurt Bikkembergs and the best evergreen Christmas songs
The Opera Ballet Vlaanderen Children's Chorus performs Flemish and international Christmas carols, Benjamin Britten's iconic A Ceremony of Carols and Historia Nativitatis Domini Nostri Iesu Christi (2018) by Kurt Bikkembergs. Maestro Bikkembergs wrote this cantata as a commission for the Children's Chorus and for the same voices as Britten's Christmas suite: soli, Children's Chorus and harp. The common thread underlying this cantata is the old Flemish Christmas song Herders hy is gebooren. As finale, the audience will be invited to join a singalong of some of the best-loved Christmas carols.
