introduction

Things change fast … At the beginning of the 19th century, there were scarcely any Christmas concerts, Christmas lights, Christmas trees or Christmas cards. But by the beginning of the 20th century, things were very different, with great celebrations, elaborate dinners and magical concerts marking the season. We still enjoy spending the darkest time of the year with friends and family in order to bring light into the darkness and share warmth. How better to do that than by singing together…

The Vlaams Radiokoor performs the annual Christmas concert with classical works and well-known Christmas Carols. An all-time favourite is Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, a perfect expression of the rich British tradition, with atmosphere, fun and an authentic Christmas spirit guaranteed.
