Dylan Thomas' unforgettable ode to his childhood Christmases, read by renowned Seattle actor David Pichette, provides a perfect setting for music of the season — including
the beloved carols of Alfred Burt, originally composed as annual Christmas cards for his
friends and family.
Also featured: Francis Poulenc's magical Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël and music by Melinda Bargreen, Eleanor Daley, Jake Runestad, and more, plus our traditional Christmas carol sing-along.
We combine forces with Eastside-based Concord Chamber Choir to present Swiss composer Frank Martin's deeply spiritual
masterpiece, the Mass for Double Choir, written early in the 20th century and not performed until 1963.
Also featured: our 40th anniversary commission from 2008, Carpe Diem by Portland composer Joan Szymko, Henryk Górecki's expansive and powerful Amen, and pieces by the Concord Chamber Choir conducted by Founder and Director Steve Stevens.
In the Old Testament, we are called forth in the Psalms to 'make a joyful noise!' For this program, we
celebrate music with our friend Michael Brockman, saxophonist and Co-Director of the Seattle Repertory Jazz
Orchestra. Michael will improvise on an arrangement of Deep River by Anders Paulsson and on Parce
mihi domine, inspired by saxophonist Jan Garbarek.
Also featured: music by Byrd, Scarlatti, Gibbons, Hassler, Elgar, and Stephen Paulus — plus spirituals and more
