Production: Renowned for their unearthly vocal blend and virtuosic ensemble singing, the four women of Anonymous 4 combine historical scholarship with contemporary performance intuition to create their magical sound. Anonymous 4 presents an anthology of some of their favorite songs for Christmas, including songs and carols from medieval England; songs, hymns and conductus from their very first concert program Legends of Saint Nicholas; and tunes from early America. Anonymous 4 has performed for sold-out audiences on major concert series and at festivals throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East; and has made 20 best-selling recordings for harmonia mundi usa. Workshop: Whether the word carol comes from the Latin caraula or the French carole, its original meaning is the same - a dance with a song. Most of our traditional Christmas carols hold deeply religious meaning, but some like, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," have a more humorous twist. The song itself has quite a history, which reflects the wit of the Victorian Era carolers and their love for a traditional Christmas dessert. Join in the merriment as we recreate a Christmas celebration in Tudor England.
