Live recordings of highlights from the performances capture the drama and excitement of an adventure that draws thousands each year in celebration of the start of the holiday season and the longest night of the year.
    "Paul Winter's annual winter solstice performances aren't just yuletide celebrations, but a global ritual played out in the embracing echoes of the cathedral of St John the Divine. Winter draws together musicians from around the world and, like the cathedral, gathers their music under the broad umbrella of the Consort. Always the musical eclectic, Winter goes to town in these once-a-year performances." (John Diliberto)
