    • SEASONAL MUSIC  The Women’s Forum of Litchfield welcomes the ensemble “earlybird” to St. Michael’s Parish, 25 South Street in Litchfield on Thursday, December 2, beginning at 2:30pm.The ensemble earlybird began as a few friends meeting around the table each week for the pleasure of singing all kinds of music, particularly that of the Renaissance. They have performed at venues throughout Connecticut, including Church of the Redeemer with the New Haven Oratorio Choir, Middlefield Federated Church, Trinity Lime Rock, Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, and the Minor Memorial Library in Roxbury. From time to time they have performed a candlelight concert in the old train tunnel at Steep Rock Preserve. Members are Jim Barrett, bass and recorder; Laura Evans, alto; Sarah Fay soprano and recorder, and Erica Warnock on viola da gamba and recorder.

      “From Heaven to Earth” is a musical gem box for the Christmas season, filled with treasures from the Middle Ages to the present. Among composers highlighted are Hans Leo Hassler, Jacob Handl, Juan Blas de Castro, Loiellet, Michael Praetorius. From the Americas comes an arrangement of the Huron Carol by member Sarah Fay. These traditional English, French, German, Spanish, American carols and their texts have been arranged in countless ways, and continue to shine today.

      The event will be open to non-Forum members with a $10 fee at the door, which includes a High Tea reception in the church’s community house.
