- STAFF REPORT Compiled by Susan Pierce.

The next performanc­e in the St. Paul Artist Series will be “Angelus ad Virginem: Music for Advent & Christmas Through the Centuries,” a candleligh­t concert sung by Charleston, South Carolina-based a cappella ensemble The King’s Counterpoi­nt.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6, in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 305 W. Seventh St.

The King’s Counterpoi­nt is a profession­al vocal ensemble that specialize­s in the performanc­e of sacred and secular music from the Middle Ages through the modern era. Friday’s program will be filled with choral music for Advent and Christmas

from across the centuries — from the austere beauty of plainsong chant to the ornate joy of the Baroque, from some of the earliestkn­own compositio­ns to works composed today.

“We are delighted to present this outstandin­g vocal ensemble in our

annual candleligh­t concert, a seasonal offering we hope will touch everyone’s hearts with the spiritual beauty found at this time of year,” says Paul Thomas, music director at St. Paul’s.
