    Halalisa Singers: Songs of Light

    Just in time for the holidays, the 31 voices of Lexington’s Halalisa Singers present seasonal music from around the world in “Songs of Light.” As the winter solstice approaches, the vocal group’s winter concert illuminates the ways in which various cultures celebrate light. Artistic Director Mary Cunningham Neumann conducts pieces in six languages, including the Hebrew “Aleih Neiri (Rise Up, My Light),” “Benedicta Es (Blessed Be)” in Latin, the Basque “Gabon Izar,” and Eric Whitacre’s setting of Edward Esch’s “Lux Aurumque.” Rousing holiday spirituals on the program include “Behold the Star!,” “Walk in the Light,” and “Yonder Came Day.” Other celebratory selections include the Welsh folk song “Gower Wassail,” the shape note hymn “Star in the East,” the gorgeous traditional Canadian song “The Huron Carol,” and Peter Yarrow’s “Light One Candle.” A highlight of the program will be the premiere of renowned songleader Nick Page’s piece “Heaven Found.” Pianist Valerie Ross and percussionist Bertram Lehmann will accompany the singers.
