For the Philadelphia Singers’ 40th Christmas concert, 20-year music director David Hayes has prepared a spirited evening of familiar carols and lesser-known compositions. After the traditional candlelight processional, the choir warms the cockles of listeners’ hearts with two English-language pieces, beginning with Gerald Finzi’s "In Terra Pax." One of the last works Finzi wrote before his early death, "In Terra Pax" gracefully articulates the words to English poet laureate Robert Bridges’s Noel: Christmas Eve, 1913, first with a solemn baritone solo describing a snowy scene of frosted hills. The choir’s multiple layers of voices later join as the poem’s narrator hears music in the distance that reminds him of the Nativity story.

Afterward, the Philadelphia Singers lend their sterling pipes to James MacMillan's "Magnificat." Commissioned by the BBC to be the first choral evensong of the new millennium, the piece sets simple vocal melodies against strains of unconventional, almost avant-garde instrumental solos to create a haunting, yet hymn-like composition. At the end of the concert, audience members are encouraged to join in on cherished Christmas carols, spreading a warm, fuzzy feeling faster than an avalanche of Christmas stockings.
