This special Christmas playlist includes well-known carols, such as “Silent night”, “The first Nowell”, and “O come, all ye faithful”. Alongside these are some equally beautiful, though lesser known, selections. Personal favourites include Gustav Holst’s “In the bleak midwinter”, the French carol “Il est né le divin enfant”, and Jan Sandström’s “Es ist ein Ros entsprungen (Lo, how a rose e’re blooming)”. The latter is a profoundly beautiful composition based off of Michael Praetorius’ famous carol of the same name. Liturgical works include Thomas Tallis’ “Videte miraculum (Behold the miracle)” and Morten Lauridsen’s “O magnum mysterium (O great mystery)”. Consider listening, also, to Marcel Dupré’s “Variations sur un Noël”, based on the French carol “Noël nouvelet”, and the final movement from Charles-Marie Widor’s “Symphonie Gothique”, based on the Entrance antiphon for the Mass for Christmas Day.
In accordance with City of Toronto by-laws, masks are required at all times while inside the church.
