The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill
8855 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118

Anna Thorvaldsdóttir: Heyr mig mín sál
Joanne Metcalf: Il nome del bel fiore

Our annual Christmas concert, sold-out for the last two years, features Joanne Metcalf’s florid invocations to the Mystic Rose of Dante’s Paradiso – a work of substantial proportions yet intimate textures.  The contemplative atmosphere continues with the extraordinary textures of Toivo Tulev and the lush harmonies of Will Todd, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Gregory Brown, and Howard Helvey, as we take a break from the winter bustle and take in The Crossing’s now-classic candlelit holiday respite.
