An early Christmas Mass













Its not even December yet and I attended an early Christmas Mass, concert actually, at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church on Wednesday, Nov 26. From Camerata Nova's website ...
Camerata Nova and Canzona are partnering to offer two performances of the glorious Christmas Mass by Michael Praetorius (1571-1621). The Mass, which offers storytelling, drama, large choruses, eight soloists and 18 instrumentalists, will be presented just as it would have been on a Christmas morning in Germany in 1620, using the styling and instruments of the time.
All that and a Happy Birthday too. Well worth attending - second performance tonight! Really gets you thinking about the holiday season.
