The Chapter House Choir first performed Carols by Candlelight  in the stunning Chapter House of York Minster in 1965, when the choir was formed to raise funds for the York Minster Appeal and the choir continues to build on its reputation as one of the North of England’s finest amateur chamber choirs, under the leadership of Musical Director  Benjamin Morris.

The concerts have continued to be a well-loved tradition in York for well over 50 years, and for many people Christmas starts with Carols by Candlelight!

This ever-popular concert will take place in the atmospheric Chapter House of York Minster, with its wonderfully resonant acoustic.  In addition to traditional Christmas choral items both old and new, there will festive music performed by the Handbell Ringers of the Chapter House Choir – that uniquely Christmassy combination in the perfect candlelit setting!

There are a limited number of tickets available for this concert due to its popularity.
