'Marley was dead, to begin with'. So begins A Christmas Carol, the iconic Christmas story by Charles Dickens that has done more to mould the idyll of a traditional Christmas than any other story.

The BBC Singers and Principal Guest Conductor Bob Chilcott present the UK premiere of Benedict Sheehan’s A Christmas Carol, narrated by Mel Giedroyc. Re-telling the classic Dickens Christmas story, Sheehan’s score features original music alongside traditional carols for all the family – including The First Nowell, The Truth from above, God rest you, merry gentlemen, The Sussex Carol and It Came Upon the Midnight Clear – but not before a first half filled with some of our best-loved Christmas choral music.
