It isn’t the holiday season without the annual winter concert of The Boston Cecilia.  Cecilia returns to the Church of the Advent in Boston and All Saints Parish in Brookline in a concert celebrating “light” and featuring our organist, Kevin Neel. Continuing to explore American and British choral music  of the 20th and 21st centuries, we weave together the themes of light in our world: as truth, as peace, as signal and warning, and as the harbinger of change. Featuring Morten Lauridsen’s Lux aeterna and Ralph Vaughan Williams Fantasia on Christmas Carols, The Boston Cecilia presents joyful music of the season.
