Nowell Sing We

Saturday, December 9, 2017
8:00 pm
Saint James Cathedral
804 9th Ave., Seattle

With roots in antiquity and beyond, winter celebrations have a long history in European culture. Early Christians chose a date close to the Roman festival of Saturnalia to celebrate the birth of Christ, and by medieval times Christmas had generated a huge outpouring of music in every European land. The Medieval Women’s Choir provides a uniquely medieval musical celebration of one of our biggest holidays.

Spring Celebration

Saturday, March 10, 2018
8:00 pm
Trinity Parish Church
609 8th Ave, Seattle

Today, it is hard to imagine how life in ages past was governed by weather and the passing seasons. Any Seattleite who has ever braved the lingering chill at an outdoor cafe in a warm coat in order to drink in the first tentative rays of spring sunshine can understand the exuberance with which medieval Europeans looked forward to spring: the balmy afternoons, the symphony of birdsong, the budding of trees and the explosion of flowers, and especially the stirrings of young love. All these things were extolled in song, and we invite you to join the Medieval Women’s Choir in casting off the gloom of winter through a celebration of spring.

Saints and Sinners

Saturday, June 2, 2018
8:00 pm
Saint James Cathedral
804 9th Ave., Seattle

Beginning in the 10th century, the Christian church began to recognize particularly holy persons as saints, and by the end of the middle ages, the list of the canonized was extensive. Many saints were felt to have a special relationship to a certain group of believers, such as young clerics (St. Nicholas) or bakers (St. Elizabeth), and were called upon to intercede with God on their behalf. Songs praising saints and recounting their good works were common throughout the middle ages. Join the MWC’s musical journey through the pantheon of medieval saints!
