Festival of Carols Dec 9

Noel Edison has put together a program that spans four centuries and patrons will experience this music coming from different parts of the Church, including the balconies. Repertoire stretches from the late Renaissance O Magnum Mysterium by Thomas Luis de Victoria, and Canada’s oldest Christmas carol, The Huron Carol, to the African American spiritual Keep your lamps, and Roger Miller’s Old Toy Trains.
