The men of ECMC will present "Merry Gentlemen," a selection of traditional holiday songs and carols in full dapper array. Evoking the comfort and familiarity of a time not long ago when handshakes sealed the deal and words were bond; when hearts were light, and life was simple. At the heart of the concert, Artistic Director Vince Peterson will prepare a new men's chorus edition of Antonio Vivaldi's celebrated masterpiece, "Gloria in D Major, RV 589," which will be presented with a small baroque consort. Other men's chorus masterworks, new and old, will include Pietro Yon's timeless "O Holy Night," Luca Marenzio's "Hodie Christus Natus Est," and Irving Berlin's iconic "White Christmas." Perhaps when you hear the bells ring, your wings will grow too? Life is still wonderful when we make it that way!
