Home for Christmas: Concert by Voce Chamber Singers

The following was sent to us by Elliot Wicks:

Music and Christmas are inseparable, as Voce’s Christmas concerts demonstrate year after year. The choice of music for Christmas is endless; Voce has tried its best to do it all! This year, we draw music from past Christmas concerts, especially a cappella gems. As always, the audience will be invited to sing with us. Familiar carols will be heard and sung, as will contemporary songs like Jim Brickman’s Coming Home for Christmas and Faith Hill’s Where are you Christmas? Classical Christmas works on the program include O Magnum Mysterium by de Victoria, On this Starry Night by Matthew Harris, and the hauntingly beautiful Ave Maria by Biebl.
