    The Starlit Birth

    Presented by at Church of the Advent, Boston

    December 11, 2009


    The Starlit Birth

    The Starlit Birth, Cecilia’s annual salute to the Christmas season in two performances, features a revival of James Woodman’s A Midwife’s Tale, commissioned and first performed by Boston Cecilia in 1996. A Midwife’s Tale sets excerpts from the Arundel Manuscript, a collection of legends about the life of Christ which dates from the 8th century and earlier, in which Zachel, a midwife enlisted by Joseph to attend to Mary at the time of Christ’s birth, tells the story of her birthing experience. Complementing this work will be additional pieces by Woodman: his Magnificat and two recent Carols, as well as Carol settings by American colonial and European composers.
