The Christmas season has long been an inspiration for composers to write some of their finest music. Join early music ensemble Echoing Air for a celebration of the music of the season from Europe and the British Isles, spanning from Medieval times through the Baroque period. Echoing Air is made up of singers and period instrumentalists. In this concert, you will hear 2 countertenors and 2 recorders with basso continuo. From the hypnotic calm of Gregorian chant to creative festivity of the High Baroque, you will hear a variety of expressions of joy and hope for the years to come.
