Join the Seattle Girls’ Choir’s premiere ensemble Prime Voci (under the directin of Jacob Winkler) and harpist Juliet Stratton for a concert of music for harp and treble voices. We begin with Benjamin Britten’s landmark A Ceremony of Carols, a haunting setting of 15th and 16th century Middle English texts. Other highlights include John Rutter’s beautiful Dancing Day, a setting of traditional English carols, and Kirke Mechem’s Seven Joys of Christmas, a fun and lively rendition of carols from around the globe. The delicate and intricate textures of the harp are a perfect complement to the angelic voices of the girls of Prime Voci. We hope you join us for an evening of exceptionally beautiful music to celebrate the holidays with Carmina Angelorum (songs of angels). As the accompanist and Associate Music Director of the Northwest Boychoir (not to mention a former member!), I have always enjoyed performing at Trinity Episcopal Church. There is something special about the space for choral music: It has rich acoustics that seem to lift the human voice like a large cathedral, yet remains an intimate concert experience. During my last few years with the Boychoir, it became clear that the increasing size of the organization made Trinity’s size impractical. I am thrilled, therefore, to be bringing the Seattle Girls’ Choir to Trinity now, and to perform in this special place once more. I hope you can join us in our presentation of Carmina Angelorum… I’ll see you there! -Jacob Winkler Artistic Director Seattle Girls’ Choir
