The most popular program of the ensemble’s season, “A Seraphic Fire Christmas” will showcase glorious traditional carols including “O Come All Ye FaithFul,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and “Once in Royal David’s City,” many of which led the ensemble to its 2012 Grammy nomination for Best Small Ensemble Performance. This one-of-a-kind juxtaposition of medieval chant traditions and other seasonal music, which the Miami Herald calls “gorgeous and evocative,” has delighted thousands of concert-goers for more than a decade. The program is, in essence, an aural collage that celebrates the holidays through various musical perspectives that speak of angels, shepherds, and the holy family.
“It really isn’t the holiday season until you hear a choir sing ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ and ‘Silent Night,’” says Founder & Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley. “Our holiday concert is a sung Christmas card – images and messages that last with listeners throughout the season.”
