The celebrated Magnificat in G minor by Antonio Vivaldi’s highlights this year’s holiday “Star-Made Shadows” concerts by Cantemus Chamber Chorus, accompanied by strings and organ. Vivaldi’s lesser known but highly acclaimed setting of Psalm 116, Laudate Dominum, a work Artistic Director Jane Ring Frank describes as “a little but mighty piece of music” is an added bonus. Contemporary works on the program include Peter Anglea’s jaunty Jubilate Deo and Phil Mattson’s jazzy renditions of familiar holiday carols. Cantemus also presents two pieces by the young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo: Tundra and Across the Vast Eternal Sky. The program closes with Morten Lauridsen’s deeply moving Sure on This Shining Night.
Come hear “Star-Made Shadows” on December 7, 7:30 pm at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Beverly; December 8, 4:00 pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newburyport; and December 15, 4:00 pm at First Church, in Swampscott. Tickets are available at selected neighborhood retailers or may be purchased on Cantemus’ website, www.cantemus.org, or at the door. Tickets are $25, $20 for seniors, and free for those under 21.
