Description

Monte Mason and the Gregorian Singers of Minneapolis present a concert of music not limited to the liturgical confines of the season of Advent, but which expounds on the concept of advent and includes themes from Christmas and Epiphany. Not only do we hear Advent standards such as "Creator of the Stars of Night" and "St. Olaf's Sequence," but we are also treated to a rare performance of Hugo Distler's Christmas Story based on the music "Lo, how a rose e'er blooming" and several unpublished original carols written by members of the Singers. Plainsong, hymns, and anthems alike make up a varied and engaging performance. Listen especially to the beautiful arrangement of the gospel hymn "Softly and Tenderly" which has become the signature piece by the Gregorian Singers. Recorded in the live acoustic of two cathedrals, St. Mark's in Minneapolis and St. Paul's in St. Paul, the Gregorian Singers are supported by the Ascension Youth Choir, the Consort of Viols, and an Orff Ensemble and Instrumentalists.
