Few things evoke the magic of the winter holidays as the transcendent splendor of the human voice raised in song. KITKA has researched and discovered a treasure-trove of seasonal music from a wide variety of Eastern European ethnic and spiritual traditions. “Wintersongs” showcases material ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols to lush, meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works… from mesmerizing pre-Christian incantations for the longest nights of the year to Hebrew chants for Chanukah to original new pieces inspired by the beauty and mystery of wintertime.
“A refreshing spin on traditional seasonal choral music… A thoroughly marvelous concert!” – National Public Radio
