December in Minnesota brings cool crisp nights and star-filled skies, and takes us on a journey back 2,000 years to the birth of the Christ child in a lowly stable. Come celebrate the wonder of the Christmas miracle in this radiant serenade featuring splendid carols both traditional and new. You’ll hear John Ferguson’s beloved He Comes to Us As One Unknown describing the mystery of the incarnation, the sweeping melodies of Howells’ Spotless Rose and Cassler’s lush Godly Stranger. Experience sparkling Jesu Carols by Stephen Paulus, whose vibrant settings of ancient texts for harp and choir stir the heart with otherworldly colors and textures. Two premieres, Love Came Down at Christmas by our Composer in Residence Benjamin Simmons, and Tomorrow, I Will Come by artistic director Christopher Aspaas, bring the joy of Christmas to you and yours!
