"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)
Mixing classical and jazz treatments of lesser-known traditional North American and European folk melodies with Brazilian rhythms, the Paul Winter Consort's WINTERSONG has become a Living Music favorite. This collection of international tributes to the season includes traditional music from England, Scandinavia, Italy, France and the Appalachian Mountains.
