Christmas with Cantus

December 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$10 - $32

Christmas with Cantus returns with nine concerts around the Twin Cities this month, with one scheduled Sun., Dec. 23, 2pm at Hamline United Methodist Church, 1514 Englewood Ave.  This year, the acclaimed vocal ensemble presents a modern take on the “Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols,” re-imagined for today’s world.

One hundred years ago, Edward White Benson, the future Archbishop of Canterbury, organized the original Lessons and Carols service for the purpose of keeping men out of pubs on Christmas Eve. This innovative new vehicle for meditation and thought quickly became a model embraced worldwide.

In addition Christmas with Cantus include Brian Schmidt’s “O Magnum Mysterium,” John Rutter’s “Gabriel’s Message,” Joni Mitchell’s “River,” and Franz Biebel’s “Ave Maria.”

Tickets are $10 and $32, and can be purchased online at www.cantussings.org or by calling 612-435-0055. Discounts for groups of 10 or more are available.
