Susquehanna Chorale Gloria! A Candlelight Christmas
Date: November 22, 2013
Location: Pennsylvania, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Experience the many moods of Christmas in this year's version of the Susquehanna Chroale's treasured Candlelight Christmas concert -- starting with the splendor of a candlelit processional with brass and organ in Lara Hoggaard's majestic setting of the ageless Latin text for "on this day," Personent Hodie.
The calm, whorshipful nature of Christmas is captured in Polish composer Pawel Lukaszewski's Ave Maria, another timeless text set here for high soprano voices floating over the reassuring depth of the other voices.
The universal Christmas experience of yearning for what has long been promised is captured in Daniel Gawthrop's Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus -- followed by the magnificence of John Rutter's Gloria for choir and brass.
And of course what is the season without family, friends, and fun? The Chorale will put you in a festive mood with We Need a Little Christmas before surrounding you with its signature sound in Silent Night.
Start your Chirstmas with the joy of song joining the brilliant sound of the trumpet as it soars from the upper reaches of Leffler Hall, Market Square Church, or Parmer Hall.
