This cherished annual event creates a holy experience for audiences in the awe-inspiring Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis. Kevin Siegfried’s “Angels Hovering Round” provides the theme for this year’s message, inviting the listener to ponder a contemporary understanding of Christ’s birth with the angels’ proclamation to “have no fear.” The story is told though an eclectic array of poetry, exquisite choral music and carols sung by all, painting a tapestry experience which removes one from a sense of time and space.

The National Lutheran Choir, under the direction of Dr. David Cherwien, seeks to strengthen, renew and preserve the heritage of sacred choral music through the highest standards of performance and literature.
