December 9 & 10 8pm December 11 3:30pm*

The Middle Ages produced some of the most serene and heartfelt Christmas music of all time. This Yuletide program visits medieval churches, convents, courts and taverns in a program combining music by Hildegard of Bingen and Anna of Cologne with the great hymns and motets of the church. Images taken from the treasure trove of medieval paintings, book illuminations and stained glass are projected onto a huge screen to heighten your experience of this otherworldly music.

*Our Sunday Matinee Sampler two-pack | A Medieval Christmas on December 11, 2016 and Helen of Troy on May 14, 2017 both at 3:30pm.

Generously supported by Al and Jane Forest.
