A Christmas Tapestry: Three Choirs in Song
December 13th at 7PM
Church of the Good Shepherd
Tickets ($10) available at the door
Join us for an evening of beautiful seasonal music provided by three area choirs! Northfield, an a cappella group of 10 singers loosely based in the Farmington area, will open the program with their special blend of early music, American shaped note music and even a Russian version of Ave Maria. Included in their portion of the program will be a magnificent William Byrd song, Hodie Christus Natus Est. Two members of the group, Dan Simonds and Sue Downes-Borko, hail from the Rangeley area.
The second half of the program will feature the members of the Rangeley Community Chorus, the Rangeley Lakes Regional School Choir and the PEPS. The well-known carol God Rest You Merry Gentlemen receives a snappy, contemporary update in one arrangement, while the well-loved Silent Night is weaved together with a fresh tune in another arrangement.
