The tradition continues! For its fifth annual presentation of Carols for Quire from the Old & New Worlds, Quire Cleveland offers a unique combination of new and old: dazzling modern settings of holiday choral music, each paired with an early setting of the same or related lyric. Hear how composers from different eras were inspired by the same timeless sentiments, while you enjoy seasonal choral music at its best.
Friday, December 20 & Saturday, December 21 at 7:30 pm
Sunday, December 22 at 3 pm
2230 Euclid Avenue
The program features Benjamin Britten & his 13th-century compatriot, Gustav Holst & Franz Gruber, Eric Whitacre & Thomas Tallis — each pair of composers illustrating different interpretations of the same/similar text.
Under the direction of Ross W. Duffin, Quire Cleveland makes the spectacular architecture of Trinity Cathedral resonate from the rafters with glorious choral song that is entertaining & accessible to all.
Everyone is welcome! Tickets will also be available at the concert door.
