THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1963 25TH ANNIVERSARY Christmas Musicale At High School Sunday The Christmas program in Mt. Vernon, which has achieved a unique pattern and has been |jg3 WHEELING DEALING on S.ROYAl RENT-A-PAIR OF SNOW TREADS ONLY $E£00 Pe r Month (650x13 and 750x14) Other Siz^s Slightly Higher STAN The TIRE MAN 12th and Broadway Dial 242-6400 refined into what the pub'ic expects to see and hear as t h e "musicale", has arrived at its 25th birthday. The program for the public, without admission charge, will be presented at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, December 15, in the high school auditorium. Approximately 250 participants will combine talent and effort to present the music of the season in a purely unadulterated form, free from the "show" aspect so prevalent in today's commercialized world. As the original event had a humble beginning, the songs and music have a simplicity which has become traditional over the years. No Christmas trees, no fancy decorations, none of the "Santa Claus' " aspect is used but a program is created out of traditional music dating back as far as the 13th century and being as modern as the latest contemporary American compo ser. In 1947 the "Song of Christ, mas" was introduced which is a setting of parts of many songs which have been traditional throughout the past 600 years. This music was adapted for the Mt. Vernon performances to use choir, girls chorus, orchestra in place of the small choir and orchestra it was originally written for in 1945 and the NBC network Christmas Show of Fred Waring. The "Medley for Christmas" in its original concept was a sort of "Sing Along with Mitch" performance with emphasis on audience participation and the Freshmen Chorus (predecessor to the Voice I Classes) acting onal leatures have boon added onal features have been addcl over the years also, including, the use of the A Cappclla Choir to sing accompaniment to the voice classes on "Sleep Little Jesus." The tableau has had a new concept several times — at times being authentic to the point of copying piece paintings of great masters. In recent years the brass choir on "O Come All Ye Faithful" has added a climatic note to an ever growing "mountain peak of tone." This year the introit, "Benedictus and Hosanna" sung by the A Capella Choir at the start of the program will be a first performance. The orchhes- tra numbers presenting the "Pastorale" from the Messiah (Handel) stay in keeping with the great music for the season. Some of the lesser heard carols will be mentioned in the orchestra arrangement of carols by Anderson, "A Christmas Festival." An original composition Is for this program alone and even though fitting in several settings, has never been heard except as the processional. Voice I classes bear candles symbolizing the "light coming into the world" and wear very simple robes, also symbolic of the swaddling clothes of the Babe. Joined by the Choir they progress to the lilting tune of "O How Shall I Receive Thee." To those who have seen it year after year it is not necessary to mention that doors open to a dimy lit, hushed atmosphere, at. 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 15. To those who see and hear the musicale for the first or second time, the smoothness — undisturbed by applause — of the program is impressive and inspiring. Plan to arrive early enough to read the program before the house lights are dimmed completely at 2:00 p.m. The program is about an hour in length so as not to interfere with other activities at churches. roqe You do the because we do the big buying Fully Cooked—Smoked «•« Lb.
