Vox Renaissance Consort
Voices and Period Instruments
  Renaissance Noël

This season marks the 31st consecutive year of our annual tradition of magical Renaissance Noël concerts by the Vox Renaissance Consort, celebrating the glorious Renaissance Christmas music of Old Europe, (including authentic Eastern European carols), with masterpieces for single and double chorus, solo voices, and original period instruments, and—new this season!—an exciting additional performance at the Church of the Good Samaritan in Paoli. A unique feature of these concerts is our Renaissance Consort performers exquisitely attired in lush period costumes. An enchanting experience that will bring you back to a true Noël.
