The Jameson Singers invite you to our festive program for the holidays, With a Joyful Heart. Join us for an evening of song in Cambridge on Saturday, December 3, or treat yourself to a musical afternoon at our new venue in Newton on Sunday, December 4!
Highlights include Ukrainian composer Dmytro Bortniansky’s choral concerto, Slava vo vyshnikh Bohu (Glory to God in the Highest), with its unique blend of Baroque polyphony, Ukrainian folk melodies, and Church Slavonic liturgy. In Dona Nobis Pacem, contemporary Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks makes a poignant plea for peace. Johannes Brahms uses poetry, chromatic colors, and continually changing rhythms to take listeners on an intensely emotional journey in his motet, O Heiland, reiss die Himmel auf (O Savior, tear open the heavens).
Our program also features works from Renaissance masters William Byrd and Thomas Tomkins, modern gems from Stephen Paulus and Stephen Caracciolo — and YOU, joining us in our annual carol sing!
