Active listening: December in songs from around the world
With Rachel Beausoleil
Explore holiday repertoire from beyond our borders… You won’t hear Jingle Bells during this presentation!
From Christmas and Hanukkah music to pagan solstice songs, Rachel will introduce you to a variety of cultural traditions during this lively audio-visual presentation on the music of December celebrations from around the world.
This has been one of CAMMAC’s favourite holiday activities in the past few years, so we do hope you’ll join us for the 2022 edition. It’s a perfect opportunity to hold an all ages listening party (don’t forget your favourite seasonal snacks)… the kids will love it!

Play in a trio with Vincent Lauzer: Christmas with Praetorius
A workshop in which you will be invited to play works by Michael Praetorius, a German composer of the Renaissance. He wrote trios on well-known Christmas tunes of the time.
For this workshop, Vincent Lauzer will have recorded the pieces of Praetorius and you will have the opportunity to play a trio with him! You can prepare all the recorder parts you want to play and you will have the opportunity to play several instruments, if you wish.
Here are the preferred recorders for each line and the metronomic indications for each piece:
Vom Himmel hoch I
Soprano (line 1), alto (line 2), tenor (line 3)
Metronome: half note = 92
In dulci jubilo
Alto (line 1), alto or tenor (line 2), tenor (line 3)
Metronome : half note / dotted half note = 58
