CLASSICAL | Musica Spei 

Did you ever wonder when a popular carol originated? Musica Spei's holiday concert, titled "Evermore and Evermore: Carols Then and Now," is going to give you the answers. Musica Spei specializes in sacred a cappella music of the Renaissance, and program selections include the likes of Franco-Flemish composers Orlande de Lassus (c1532-1594) and Johannes Ockeghem (c1410-1497), Spaniard Cristobal de Morales (c1500-1553), and more. These special concerts will also utilize church organists so that the audience can easily participate in a sing-along of more "modern" carols, inspired by the original works.

Musica Spei performs Thursday, December 6, 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 28 Lincoln Ave., Pittsford. (Another concert will take place December 7 at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Dansville.) Free-will offering ($10 suggested). 731-7149, wp.MusicaSpei.org.
