The midcoast a cappella vocal ensemble VoXX: Voice of Twenty will celebrate the arrival of 2014 with its annual Music for the New Year concerts in January. “Mary, Mother and Child” is built around works that explore the Marian Canon as manifested through the ages, with music that ranges from serene to upbeat. The repertoire covers a broad spectrum of time and style, from medieval chant and early polyphony, through Renaissance chorale and contemporary harmony. This is music that includes songs of sorrow and ecstatic joy, hymns and carols, ancient and modern, that tell the stories of Mary’s life and her role as mother both human and divine.
Admission is $10, tickets available at the door.
