A Chanticleer Christmas always consists of old favorites from across the centuries, new old things, and sometimes brand new music.  Steven Sametz, Professor at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and somebody who was present at the creation of Chanticleer, just about, has written a few songs which are a permanent part of our repertoire - "I have had singing" and "in time of.." to mention two of them.

This year we asked him to set "O Magnum Mysterium" for Christmas.  We're rehearsing it now with Steven and it will have its world premiere in Fairfax, VA on November 30.
