The Christmas Story

Every holiday season, the Waverly Consort’s thirteen-member ensemble, under the direction of Michael Jaffee, performs The Christmas Story at The Cloisters. This program—beloved since its premiere at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1980—includes vocal and instrumental hymns, processionals, antiphons, and Mass compositions from the tenth to the fifteenth century arranged as a narrative. These compositions evoke the liturgical calendar for Advent and Christmastide and are rooted in music manuscripts and illuminated miniatures of the Middle Ages.

Tickets include Museum admission.
