Christmas with Vox Fidelis**, December 19, 2009, 7:30 PM
St. Paul the Apostle, Highland Park, NJ
Please note: This event has been rescheduled for January 16, 2010, owing to weather conditions.
Our program will explore the music of three composers from the early sixteenth century, including some of the most beautiful and reflective works written for the Advent/Christmas season. Some of the pieces will be familiar favorites, such as In dulce jubilo and Joseph lieber, Joseph mein, and others will hopefully become new favorites, including the motet and mass setting, Pastores quidnam vidistis, based on the tales of shepherds as they returned from worshiping the Christ child. The music selected for this evening offers a much needed respite of beauty and inspiration to round off anyone’s busy holiday season. Come hear the music and the story of the Nativity.
