Celebrate the reason for the season with A Cathedral Christmas— a concert of sacred Christmas music that tells the story of Christmas. “The program is a reimagining of the classic lessons and carols format,” says Alex Oldroyd, Director of Music at Corpus Christi Cathedral. “We'll have some traditional readings and familiar carols that everyone knows and loves. There are also some less well-known works that I think will stick in people's minds both for the beauty of the music as well as the texts.”

Several excerpts from the Christmas portion of Handel's Messiah, which draws its text directly from scripture, frame the program and act as musical “lessons.” Musicians from the community will come together to form a socially-distant ensemble for the performance. The concert is offered as a gift to the community of Corpus Christi from the Diocese and is bound to help spread Christmas spirit.
