Get into the festive spirit by joining singer Ariane to learn how to sing a mixture of medieval and traditional carols from around Europe.

Following our popular In Retreat weekly online workshop series which began at the start of lockdown, The Telling is thrilled to present a six-week Carol edition to help you get into the festive spirit during these unprecedented times.

Taking place at the usual In Retreat time of 11am - 11.30am every Friday on Zoom, singer Ariane Prüssner will guide you through a mixture of medieval and traditional carols from around Europe as well as a few requests!

Can't make that time? The sessions will also be made available post-broadcast for ticket holders to watch at their leisure.

Each session is £5, or buy a full 6-week cycle ticket at the discounted price of £25!

Plus, with a full-cycle ticket, you also have the option to order The Telling's The Secret Life of Carols CD at the reduced price of £10 (normally £15) which includes much of the course material and more performed by the group.

Repertoire includes:

13 Nov: Es kommt ein Schiff and Veni, veni Emmanuel

20 Nov: Es Ist Ein Rose Entsprungen and Patapan

27 Nov: O Jesulein Süss

  4 Dec: El noi de la mare (Catalan)

11 Dec: reminder session & singalong plus Ther Is No Rose

18 Dec: reminder session & singalong plus Stille Nacht and Coventry Carol


Have a request? Let us know!

Each session will take place on Zoom. You don't need a webcam and all will be on mute so you can sing without fear. Please state your Zoom Display Name during checkout. In the runup to each workshop, you will be emailed details on how to join via Zoom as well as how to access lyrics/scores.
