Cantemus Chamber Chorus’s winter program, Psalmists and Seers, reveals the solemn splendor and holy excitement of the holiday season, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms at its center. Its colorful Hebrew poetry and zigzagging rhythms proclaim the greatness of the season. The Midwife’s Tale, a Christmas cantata by Cambridge composer James Woodman, reflects in sonorous medieval poetry the mystery and awe of the Nativity. Other pieces on the program set the scene for a melodious, enchanting and heart-stirring season of true joy. The final piece, Lauridsen’s prayerful setting of James Agee’s poem Sure on This Shining Night, shimmers with the essence of tranquility and peace. Harp, organ and percussion accompany the chorus, and a reception follows the concert. Tickets: adults, $25; seniors, $20; 21 & under, free.
