Music Celebrating Christmas from Times Past
Renaissance Noël performed by Vox Renaissance Consort
Take a beautiful and joyous musical journey back in time when Valentin Radu, artistic director and conductor of VoxAmaDeus, leads his Vox Renaissance Consort in two performances of beloved music for the Christmas season—melodies that were popular during the European High Renaissance and Early Baroque periods (about 1550 to 1675).
Renaissance Noël is a magical mixture of centuries-old folk songs, carols, motets and madrigals. In fact, several selections on the Vox Renaissance Consort program are still sung and revered today. The entire family will delight in hauntingly beautiful classics like “Greensleaves,” the ancient chant “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” lively Christmas bells and the gentle “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming.”
Renaissance Noël is a feast for the ears and the eyes—and easy on the family pocketbook! The professional singers of Vox Renaissance Consort are attired in lush High Renaissance dress and accompanied by minstrels playing period appropriate instruments. The program is conducted by the dynamic Maestro Valentin Radu. Performance dates, times and locations are:
- Friday, December 11 at 8:00 p.m. in Paul’s Episcopal Church at 22 East Chestnut Hill Avenue near the intersection of Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, PA 19118.
