Dulces Voces

Lincoln-based vocal group Dulces Voces performs a concert of Christmas music mostly from before the time of Bach, with guests the Lincoln Early Music Consort. You'll hear some familiar favorites like "Good Christian Men Rejoice" or "Lo How a Rose Er Blooming", but many pieces pieces with texts related to the season that may be new discoveries. The instrumentalists will also play music using viols, crumhorns, recorders and psaltry.

Abendmusik at First-Plymouth presents a concert of Christmas music called Behold the Star! The performance's title is significant not just because of the holiday, but because the ceiling of the venue at First-Plymouth Church in Lincoln is deep blue with gold stars. It is said that the stars are painted in patterns that would have been visible in the night sky at the time of Jesus' birth. You can imagine that sparkling image as you listen.

12/04 – Nebraska Brass, “A Nebraska Brass Christmas,” recorded 12/6/15 and Nebraska Brass, “Simple Gifts,” (recorded 11/15/15)
