    Christmas in Medieval England

    Presented by at First Church in Cambridge, Congregational

    December 20 - December 21, 2013


    Christmas in Medieval England

    Try something different this Christmas. Blue Heron (Scott Metcalfe, dir.) offers a festive program of music for Advent and Christmas from 15th-century England, including motets by Leonel Power and John Dunstaple, English carols, and Sarum plainchant. This year, we have added a Saturday matinee, for a total of three performances. Both Christmas concerts sold out last year. So, act now to secure your seats! In 2011, Jeffrey Gantz wrote: "From out of the darkness of the First Church in Cambridge, Congregational, Saturday night soared the words 'Veni, veni, O Oriens!’ - 'Come, come, O Morning Star!' It was a reminder that, for medieval England, the star of Bethlehem was a symbol of the light that dispels the gloom of bleak winter. Blue Heron’s stellar “Christmas in Medieval England’’ program followed that trajectory, the choir collecting about the altar to sing 'Veni, veni, Emmanuel!’' before coming forward into the chancel and the light."
