"Santa Barbara's most elegant choral ensemble"
Experience the choral music of Christmas with the Quire of Voyces. December brings our ever-popular concert which will put you in the warm spirit of the holidays. Hear the pinnacle of wondrous choral music in the unparalleled acoustic of St. Anthony's Seminary. The Quire of Voyces "Mysteries of Christmas" performance is the ultimate "spirituality for the connoisseur.” As the days grow shorter and crisper, the Quire of Voyces invites you to gather around our musical hearth to warm heart and soul with some of the season's most glowing choral works. Our program will include Christmas pieces by Praetorius and Victoria, and lovely bedtime prayer set by Max Reger, two world premiers by composer-in-residence, Michael Eglin, and John Taverner's monument of the English Renaissance, The Western Wind Mass.
Saturday, May 4 at 7pm
Join Santa Barbara's premier choral ensemble in performances of the great cathedral classics of the Renaissance and Twentieth Centuries. Experience artistic excellence and passion at its best! Join the Quire of Voyces in a performance of the finest choral music in the cathedral tradition. Music, and choral music in particular, connects us -- in a way that nothing else in life does -- to memories of what and whom we loved. The Quire of Voyces will honor this shared legace with a rich program of memorial music centering on the world premier of Michael Eglin's Requiem, and including Hubert Parry's Songs of Farewell and Herbert Howells' Take him, earth, for cherishing, written for the funeral of President John F. Kennedy.
