Carols for Quire IX explores choral music for Christmas from many lands and centuries, expressing the joy, solemnity, humor, all celebrating the season.
You'll hear the familiar Coventry Carol, the original setting of Silent Night, and more, from earlier centuries, as well as works by living composers Eric Whitacre and Paul Mealor.
New this year is a set of Hanukkah tunes, including 16th-century melodies newly restored to Renaissance harmonies by Quire’s Artistic Director, Ross Duffin. Also, you'll enjoy a reprise of the Tom Lehrer song, (I'm Spending) Hanukkah in Santa Monica, in a choral arrangement made especially for Quire.
