Luminos Ensemble: Mysterium
Luminos Ensemble will present Mysterium, a candlelit meditation on Christmas at St. Paul’s in Charlottetown on December 16 and at Summerside Presbyterian on December 17. Both concerts will begin at 7:30 pm. In Mysterium, the 16 voices of Luminos Ensemble will perform interweaving familiar carols with lesser-known historical and world-wide traditions, including Renaissance polyphony by Thomas de Victoria, adaptations of carols by Indigenous composer Andrew Balfour, and a melding of Indian and Western classical styles by Indian-American composer Reena Esmail. Traditional favourites will also be performed, including The First Nowell and Silent Night, as well as audience favourite Ave Maria by Franz Biebl.
