In Winter's House

DECEMBER 9, 2023

"In winter's house there's a flame 
being dreamt by a child in the night, 
in the small quiet house at the turn in the lane 
where the darkness gives way to light." 
            -Jayne Draycott, set by Joanna Marsh

Who is this concert for? 

  • The Christmas concert purist

  • those looking for new traditions


What will I know and what will be new to me?

  • You’ll experience the whole gamut of seasonal music including new arrangements of well known carols and music from your favourite TV specials. 

  • You’ve heard Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium before, but have you ever heard it accompanied by mushrooms? Have you heard Christmas music with Raga influences, like Reena Esmail’s Winter Breviary, or a tribute to Filipino Christmas traditions, like Meet Me for Noche Buena by Saunder Choi

  • You might have joined us in the past thirty years of concerts in cathedrals, and this year you’ll experience those same feelings on the festive Granville Island, in a space accessible to all!


How is a December concert with musica intima different?

  • In this season of warmth and tradition, our connections to you and to each other create a beautiful intimacy.

  • Together, we’ll all learn what Winter’s House means to our Storyteller-in-Residence, T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss, as well as experience diverse viewpoints through composers from a variety of cultural backgrounds 


musica intima exists to create incredible moments—to share the power of music with our audiences, and invite them into our circle of sound. Your financial support of the ensemble’s professional performance, touring, recording, and community outreach initiatives remains invaluable. 

As with most not-for-profit arts organizations, ticket revenue only accounts for a small portion of our total budget. If you have been touched by musica intima’s performances, please consider a tax-deductible gift to the musica intima society. Your continued support of one of Canada’s musical gems is vital, allowing us to continue presenting world-class performances at home and abroad, and supporting generations of professional musicians. 

Thank you!
