The seasonal splendor of the Glory of Christmas . . .<br> begins with the traditional holiday processional: Adeste Fidelis (O Come All Ye Faithful)--first a single soprano begins processing quietly, followed by the glorious pageantry of the festive choral processional joined by the congregation, pipe organ, and timpani. <br><br>Through a creative blend of congregational Christmas carols, solos, instruments, with the spoken word, the nativity story unfolds with colorful wonder. Both scriptures and contemporary readings recount the Christmas Story. <br>Our renowned Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ pulls out all the stops to fill our wonderfully restored sanctuary with the glorious sounds of Angels, Wisemen, and Shepherds.<br> We end the service with John Rutter's traditional Candlelight Carol and Silent Night as the single candle of the Spirit of Christmas is passed from one to another to fill our hearts with a renewed light of hope and peace.<br> see www.FirstUMusic.com for repertoire

Maurice Duruflé (1902-1895) destroyed many of his own compositions because they did not meet his standards. As a result, Duruflé left us with only two large choral works: the Messe ‘Cum jubilo’ and the Requiem. Both works are masterfully crafted, combining Gregorian Chant and 20th century harmony seamlessly into emotionally complex and engaging works of art. Peabody Square Choral Artists presents this concert free of charge at the Parish of All Saints, Ashmont. This concert is conducted by Michael Raleigh and features the skillful and talented organists Andrew Sheranian and Ross Wood.

A fast-rising star on the international stage, Benjamin Alard has been hailed for his “intellectual mastery” (The Globe and Mail) in his performances of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music. Join him in his BEMF concert series début in a journey through the great master’s music for harpsichord and organ. Before settling in Leipzig, Bach spent much of his early life traveling across Germany, gaining fame for his virtuosic keyboard playing. Bach immersed himself in the local German styles but just as eagerly exposed himself to music from Italy, France, and England. Experience the vivid contrasts of a youthful Bach’s intense keyboard writing, at turns electrifying and serene, as he explored (and often tried to surpass) these diverse influences.

Charles Wood’s St. Mark Passion was written in the span of 9 days at the request of the Rev. Dr. Eric Milner-White (then Dean of King’s College in Cambridge and institutor of the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s). The St. Mark Passion, a large scale work soloists, choir and organ, traces Jesus’ last days from The Last Supper to the Crucifixion. As with Bach’s Passions, hymns are interspersed throughout the narrative to draw the audience into the action. Presented by the La Farge Ensemble.

What is Choral Evensong? “Evensong … is a very tiny fragment of something else: it is a fragment of the worship which is offered to God by Christian people every hour in every part of the world. When you come to Evensong here it is as if you were dropping in on a conversation already in progress — a conversation between God and people which began long before you were born and will go on long after you are dead.” Why celebrate Evensong?
