Tonight! Welcome Yule, (7:30 PM at Grace Episcopal on Wisconsin's own Capitol Square). 

Tickets will be sold at the door.

Welcome Yule! traverses six centuries of music in celebration of Christmas. Benjamin Britten’s bright and beautiful Ceremony of Carols, (accompanied by harp) will close the first half of the program after a set of exquisite choral motets from the Renaissance by Palestrina, Tallis and Byrd along with a wonderful piece from a 16th century female composer and nun, Raffaella Aleotti. 

After intermission, we will pay tribute to the late Stephen Paulus with his bright and uplifting The Ship Carol, accompanied by harp, followed by a rousing Howells Magnificat rendition accompanied on Grace Episcopal's marvelous Casavant Frere's organ by Mark Brampton Smith. The choir will sing uplifting works by contemporary composers Jean Belmont Ford, David Carney, Wayne Oquin and wrap up the evening with a jazz arrangement of Silent Night by Ivo Antognini, a Nigerian carol by Christian Onyeji , and a spiritual by Rosephanye Powell.
