The Noel consort
The idea of the cycle is an unconventional arrangement of well-known traditional European carols. Each carol appears in unusual sounding and original genre interpretation. The Noel consort represents a unique encyclopedia of contemporary choral writing.
Since early childhood, each of us associates the Christmas with the brightest, most joyous thoughts and feelings.
At first, it is awaiting for the Christmas tree and gifts as the embodiment of the child’s hopes and aspirations. Later on, there comes the awareness that this incredible event happens in the life of each and everyone. For God gave our His Son on this day.
I think, the Christmas, which is the Embodiment of the Word becoming music finds its complete equivalent in the choral singing, where we can clearly observe how the word itself becomes a musical flesh. This work became for me a real feast of becoming acquainted with the centuries-old Christian tradition of singing.
