Carols by Candlelight – The Chapter House, York Minster

Musical Director: Benjamin Morris

The Chapter House Choir’s  first performance of Carols by Candlelight was in the wonderful Chapter House of York Minster in 1965, when the choir was formed to raise funds for the York Minster Appeal.  The Carols by Candlelight concerts have continued to be a well-loved tradition in York for over 50 years, and for many people Christmas starts with Carols by Candlelight!

This ever popular concert will be in its traditional format, alternating Christmas choral items, instrumental interludes, and festive music by the Handbell Ringers of the Chapter House Choir, including a new handbell commission.

The Chapter House 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.

Doors open at 7pm – running time 90 minutes.
