Music on the Hill Rings in the Season with Jubilate Ringers in Concert

Jubilate Ringers, bells, and organ pipes, all part of Music on the Hill’s “Sounds of the Season” Christmas concert to be held in Wilton on Dec. 11.

No need to wait for Christmas Day to hear the bells! The full Jubilate Ringers handbell choir — 14 ringers playing more than 100 bells, plus hand chimes and a “little something” unexpected — will perform as part of Music on the Hill‘s “Sounds of the Season” Christmas concert, to be held at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Wilton on Friday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m.

“Sounds of the Season” will feature the ringers along with the Music on the Hill Festival Chorus performing Christmas carols old and new, as well as favorite carols sung by all.

The Jubilate Ringers will premiere Noël, a suite of French carols arranged for handbells by artistic director Ellen Dickinson, the concert’s conductor. They will also ring the dramatic and hauntingly beautiful “Change Ring Prelude on Divinium Mysterium,” an arrangement of the medieval plainchant melody found in hymnals as “Of the Father’s Love Begotten.”

Concert tickets are $20 in advance online or $25 at the door. Children and students are admitted free. St. Matthew’s Church is located at 48 New Canaan Rd..
