"The Anonymous 4 perform as seemingly one entity, their voices blending perfectly."
--Bangor Daily News
 
On Yoolis Night
 
Returning to the Kennedy Center, Anonymous 4 revisits one of their first--and one of their most beloved--holiday programs. Songs, motets, and carols from British sources illuminate all of the aspects of the Christmas story and its many kindred legends: biblical precursors, Balaam's prophecy, Gabriel's greeting, Mary's virginity, the birth of Jesus, the rising of the star, the angels and the shepherds, the manger and its animals, the three Magi and their gifts.
 
These works express a range of responses to these marvels: mirth and joy, wonder and praise, even theological interpretation. But the thread that ties this music together is a striving toward something out of the ordinary, a special sound or gesture, reserved for this most wonderful time.
 
Featured will be the antiphon Hodie Christus natus est; the carols Ave Maria, Ecce quod natura, and Ther is no rose of swych vertu; the songs Gabriel fram heven-king, Peperit virgo; and the carol ballad Lullay, als I lay on Yoolis night.
