Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale presents A Candlelight Christmas

From Musica Sacra:

"A Candlelight Christmas" is the theme of a concert of choral music to be presented by the Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 4210 SW Genesee St., West Seattle, Friday, Dec. 7, 7:30 pm.

A candlelight procession opens to feature holiday choral music from the Renaissance through the modern day. An Advent-like atmosphere of mystery pervades the first half as segments on waiting, mystery and the mother are explored. The second half moves to more of a celebratory tone as we explore the meaning of light and end with a prayer for peace.

Composers such as as Whitacre, Caccini, Gjeilo, Forbes, and John Ferguson are featured as well as a setting of Silent Night by Stephen Paulus and the premiere of an arrangement of John Rutter’s Candlelight Carol written by Maestro Ingalls. This is a not-to- be-missed concert by one of Seattle’s premiere vocal groups.

MSCC will be partnering with the West Seattle Helpline and the West Seattle Food Bank for this concert series. Bring a hat, gloves or a scarf or 5 non-perishable food items and SAVE $5 on your ticket at the door.
