Some jackets and ties, a few high heels, but mostly come as you are.

The intimacy of The Folger and the absolute beauty of the Consort's and singers' music made for a wonderful respite from the commercial holiday marathon. Give yourself a gift and go.

Description

The Folger Consort captures a distinctively Spanish spirit this holiday season with choir, organ, winds, and strings. The Christmas repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries, Spain’s “Golden Age” of arts and literature, is particularly ravishing — with sonorous and radiant motets, lively and energetic villançicos (carols), and dazzling instrumental works.

With guest vocalists The Concord Ensemble and instrumentalists Marilyn Boenau, Alexander Bonus, Charles Weaver, Webb Wiggins, and Marcia Young.
