December Starlight: Carols for the Christmas Season (at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Medina WA)
"The audience was already on its feet, with a standing ovation for the Seattle Choral Company."
                Seattle Times

"The Seattle Choral Company's performance . . . reached a clear, sweet purity of tone. It became a moving experience."
                Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Even before there was Christmas, the stars were important among peoples. These days, as the nights of December grow longer, the lights of the Christmas season seem to burn brighter. The Seattle Choral Company presents their annual holiday celebration to sing to the light of human hope and understanding.

And ever among, a maiden sung,
Lullay, by by, lullay."
