Six virtual choral ensembles bring the joy of the holiday season to life with carols, hymns and spoken word that epitomize hope and goodwill. Program highlights include Francis Poulenc’s Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël and Zoltán Kodály’s Veni Emmanuel. Then sing along at home to archival recordings of the beloved David Willcocks carols.
