Love Came Down: Christmas in Harvard Square was recorded on December 19 at the Saint Paul’s Church Harvard Square. It was performed by the Choir of Men and Boys of Saint Paul’s (featuring the boys of Saint Paul’s Choir School), conductor James Kennerley, and organist Maks Adach, with accompaniment by the Back Bay Brass Ensemble. This recording was prepared by Ball Square Films.

The concert features the debut of Love Came Down at Christmas, an original composition by James Kennerley.

This season’s iteration of “Christmas in Harvard Square” features a Christmas program that originates across the globe – including music from Nigeria, Germany, France, the Ukraine, the West Indies, Austria, and Harvard Square itself! Immerse yourself in a holiday traditional like no other, and enjoy audience favorites like “Joy to the world”, “Carol of the Bells” and “O Holy Night”, as well as a medieval French processional hymn, a lively West Indian Calypso carol, and John Rutter’s powerful, uplifting work, “Gloria”. The boy choristers are joined by the professional male singers from Saint Paul’s Choir, an ensemble renowned for its audible beauty and passionate performances. The concert also features audience sing-alongs, accompanied by the virtuosic Back Bay Brass ensemble, together with percussion and the majestic Saint Paul’s pipe organ. A cameo appearance by the youngest choristers of the choir delight in a beloved arrangement of “Silent Night”, originated by SPCS Founder Theodore Marier.
