Enjoy a concert of a cappella music by the 17-voice chorale Renaissance Revival in colorful period costumes, directed by Michael McCarthy. The concert features Renaissance motets for the Christmas season by di Lasso, Byrd, Sweelinck, Palestrina, Schein, Victoria, and others, as well as traditional carols with some audience participation. We hope to recreate the beauty, mystery and pageantry of a European cathedral in the 1500’s, when the celebration of Christ’s birth was a major highlight of the year. Event date: Saturday Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m., Hampton Congregational Church, 263 Main St., Hampton, CT.
