1hr 59min : St. Olaf Christmas Festival - 2019

The St. Olaf Christmas Festival is a concert performance that has become one of the nation's most cherished holiday celebrations.

Started in 1912 by F. Melius Christiansen, founder of the St. Olaf College Music Department, the festival — which takes place at the college in Northfield, Minn. — includes hymns, carols, choral works and orchestral selections celebrating the Nativity and featuring more than 500 student musicians in five choirs and the St. Olaf Orchestra.

This year's festival, "A New Song of Grace and Truth," features the St. Olaf Choir, the St. Olaf Orchestra, the St. Olaf Cantorei, the St. Olaf Chapel Choir, the Manitou Singers and the Viking Chorus, performing as individual groups and as a massed ensemble.

Listen now to this year's performance using the player above.
