Crescendo Chorus, Soloists, Chris Belluscio – trumpet, Tricia van Oers – recorder, Christa Patton – harp, directed by Christine Gevert from the organ
A special winter concert with candlelight and the harmonic voices of Crescendo Chorus singing favorites of the holiday season in a new version. Popular traditional Carols for Yuletide, Solstice and Christmas with new lyrics by Australian musician, lyricist, and writer Sophia Green are featured. Her words call for Earth Stewardship, and convey our connections with one another and nature. The familiar melodies and rich harmonies are skillfully arranged for chorus and instruments. Also on the program are contemporary English and Irish Carol settings by Oliver Barton, Tim Porter, and others. The vocal works are contrasted by early English instrumental pieces for trumpet, recorder, harp, and organ.
