Bourgie Hall presents

Ancient Christmas Carols

La Nef and Meredith Hall

Traditional Christmas carols and instrumental music from the Baroque period combine to recreate the Christmas of yesteryear. Soprano Meredith Hall once again lends her crystalline voice to the warm sounds of La Nef’s historical instruments in celebration of Jesus’ birth.

Meredith Hall, soprano

Canadian soprano Meredith Hall delights audiences internationally with her “lustrous sound and fluent legato” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “bravura musical performance matched by a riveting sense of the dramatic” (Boston Globe). Equally at home in opera, oratorio, and concert repertoire, she is especially in demand for Baroque and Classical works.

In Oratorio, Ms. Hall has performed the masterworks of Bach, Handel and Haydn with groups such as The Toronto Symphony, the Handel and Haydn Society, Les Violons du Roi, the Elmer Iseler Singers, The Grand Philharmonic Choir, Symphony Nova Scotia, the Portland Baroque Orchestra, The Victoria Symphony, The Memphis Symphony, The Ottawa Choral Society, The Vancouver Chamber Choir, Orchestra London and the Baldwin Wallace Bach Festival. She has sung Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Toronto Mendelssohn choir, the Göttingen Handel Festival, and the Arcadia Orchestra (Osaka, Japan), Vaughan-Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem for the St. Lawrence Choir, Poulenc’s Gloria and Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem for the Kingston Choral Society (England), and Schubert’s Mass in G with the Montreal Symphony. She has performed the role of Josabeth in Handel’s Athalia for the Göttingen Handel Festival.
