A Christmas Carol

Dickens’ classic tale is retold through song (the vast majority being choral not solo), without narration and draws on a wide variety of styles – some old, some new – whilst also weaving well-loved carols that would have been known in Victorian England into the texture. The libretto retains much of Dickens’ original text used so skilfully by Deborah McAndrew, winner of “Best New Play” at the 2014 UK Theatre Awards.

Christmas is a collection of 10 original, modern versions of familiar carols alongside new Christmas choral songs, all specially written or arranged for the choir by the Phoenix Singers’ Director, Ashley Thompson. These pieces are by no means replacements of, or improvements to, the better-known versions – rather they are intended to reflect new light on our rich heritage.
