Radiant Dawn: Music for Christmas
Fri, November 30, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-4$15 – $62
The Boston Cecilia returns to the Church of the Advent in Boston and All Saints Parish in Brookline in a concert celebrating light. Continuing to explore American and British choral music of the 20th and 21st centuries, the ensemble will feature Morten Lauridsen’s choral classic Lux Aeterna and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ beloved Fantasia on Christmas Carols with baritone soloist John Bitsas. Emmanuel Church organist Kevin Neel will be the accompanist. Cellist Shay Rudolph will accompany the chorus on Norwegian-born composer Ola Gjeilo’s Serenity, an evocative double chorus setting of O Magnum Mysterium. A cappella works by Eric Whitacre and Scottish composer James Macmillan will complete the concert. Conducted by George Case.
