Watch Boston Byzantine Choir on Live Stream: January 6

On January 6, 2018, the Boston Byzantine Choir under the direction of Charles R. Marge will present "The Twelve Days of Christmas." The concert will be held at St. Mary's Orthodox Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts and will be livestreamed here at 6 pm Eastern Standard Time. In this program, the Choir will take us on a journey of sacred chant through the twelve days of Christmas starting with the Nativity and ending with Epiphany. Each day from December 25 through January 6 brings its own hymnography rich in the theology of the season, beautifully expressed through the Byzantine musical tradition.

For the past 25 years, the Boston Byzantine Choir has endeavored to make Byzantine chant and the Orthodox Christian faith accessible to the English-speaking world. The choir grew out of the chanting tradition of St. Mary's in Cambridge, and has chanted at services and performed in concerts and festivals in New England, the Mid-Atlantic, Montreal and California. The Boston Byzantine Choir is best known for its five recordings of Byzantine Chant in English: First Fruits, Mystical Supper, Thy Passion, Thy Resurrection, and Lenten Journey. This program, which includes the New England premiere of new Byzantine chant compositions in English by Dr. Jessica Suchy-Pilalis, will form the basis for a sixth recording entitled Twelve Days, to be released later in 2018.
