Babe in a Manger, feat. Ceremony of Carols

Featuring Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols

Preservation New Jersey is very proud to host Babe in a Manger – Christmas with Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble and Princeton Girlchoir in the beautiful space of the 1867 Sanctuary!

The birth of Jesus is a sacred mystery that marks the beginning of God’s atonement for the sins of humankind. We reflect on this act of God’s love and celebrate with those who await the birth of the one who was sent to reconcile the world, a “Babe in a Manger.” Begin your Holiday Season with Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble, under the artistic direction of Chaequan Anderson, as we partner with Dr. Lynnel Jenkins and the Princeton Girlchoir to perform music that was inspired by this wondrous occasion. This program includes music by Britten, Hogan, Todd, a world premiere by Michael Robert Smith, and traditional Christmas hymn singing!
