Renaissance Voices at Sanford-Springvale
SPRINGVALE -- The Sanford-Springvale Historical Museum will once again be the setting for an evening performance of “Christmas with Renaissance Voices” at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 9.
 
The 21-voice a cappella ensemble, under the direction of Harold Stover, will sing music of the 16th and 17th centuries by Orlando de Lasso, Palestrina, Weelkes, Praetorius and other Renaissance composers, and will close the concert with a set of traditional English carols and “The Little Road to Bethlehem” by 20th century English composer Michael Head. As is their custom, the singers will intersperse the music with readings appropriate to the season.

“The choir never ceases to amaze and delight,” reviewer Christopher Hyde wrote in the Maine Sunday Telegram, and he suggested that those seeking truly spiritual Christmas music are not disappointed. “Christmas doesn’t get any better than this,” Hyde wrote.

The museum is located at 505 Main St. in Springvale. Admission for adults and seniors is $15. There is no charge for persons 21 and under.  For further information and to reserve tickets call 324 2797. The museum is handicapped-accessible.

 This will be the third year that the museum will host “Christmas with Renaissance Voices.”
