Music Matters Concert: A Renaissance & Baroque Christmas

featuring Canto Armonico

Molly Johnston, Anna Koogler, Michael Raleigh alto

Colin Campbell, Steve Klosterman, James Williamson tenor

Paul Edmon, William Farrell, Ian Pomerantz bass

A cappella and ensemble works by Michael Prætorius, Heinrich Schütz, Jakob Handl, Joseph Rheinberger, Hugo Distler, John Sheppard, William Walton, Benjamin Britten, and (arranged by) John Rutter.

Boston’s acclaimed Canto Armonico will be presenting an exquisite Christmas program for a cappella choir, lute, and viols. They will sing touching, heartfelt German and English music for Advent and Christmas, with repertoire drawn from the Renaissance and early Baroque, and from the very soul of early modern English and German Christmas music. The stately, darkly joyous sound of viols – a pair of violas da gamba – and a lute will enrich festive works in this 70-minute concert.

A luminous antidote to the Dark of the Year!
