A Chanticleer Christmas: Friday night
“America’s a cappella pride and joy” Classics Today
The joy of Christmas comes once again to Chanticleer, as we celebrate this age-old narrative with what we hope are fresh eyes and ears, hearts and voices. Gregorian chant and Biebl are never far away, but this year we turn also to carols in half-a-dozen languages, American hymns, Spanish villancicos that ask us to dance, and “I Wonder as I Wander,” which calls us to pray. This is a tradition we cherish, and we can’t wait to celebrate the holidays with you again.
Part two of #AChanticleerChristmasSMSS features works by Francis Poulenc and more. Enjoy!

Chanticleer is one of Billboard Magazine’s Top 10 best-selling classical artists. Since the 12-voice male ensemble began releasing recordings in 1981, the group has sold well over a million albums and won two GRAMMY® awards. Chanticleer was named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2008, and inducted in the American Classical Music Hall of Fame the same year.
Founded in San Francisco in 1978, Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music.
