New for 2019, Welcome Christmas! is a perennial Christmas favorite from VocalEssence, one of the world's premier choral groups. John Birge hosts an hour of traditional carols and new discoveries, including the world premiere of Nico Muhly's "The Faire Starre," a nativity cantata that draws on 17th century metaphysical poets and is set in the unique, eclectic style that has earned Muhly raves from the Metropolitan opera.

Grand candlelit halls, lavish feasts and stately dances. Escape to the royal elegance of the Elizabethan era. The time and culture of Elizabeth I also contained tension and intrigue, dark and light. And it's all evident in the music of their Christmas celebrations.
