"Chanukah Candle Blessings"

arr. A.W. Binder

During the holiday of Chanukah, the tradition of lighting candles on the menorah continues for eight days. The candles represent peace, and hope, and add light and warmth to a world that sometimes feels dark and cold. The Greenwich Choral Society presents this "Candle Blessing" gift to you in the hopes that your holidays will be filled with peace, love, light, family, good health and great food.  

Baruch atah, Adonai Eloheinu, Melech haolam, asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav, v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Chanukah..

Blessed are you, Adonai our God, Sovereign of all, who hallows us with mitzvot, commanding us to kindle the light of Chanukah.

Happy Chanukah!

"Ave Verum Corpus"

by Wolfgang Amadeaus Mozart

These 4 members of the Young Artists Philharmonic accompany about 40 GCS singers – all virtually – to offer Mozart’s little gift to our family and friends at Easter. And special thanks to YAP Conductor Stefano Miceli and GCS Maestro Paul F. Mueller for making this happen.


Six months before he died, Mozart gave a friend a little gift – the 46-bar “Ave Verum Corpus,” one of the world’s most beautiful songs.

"Silent Night"

Franz Gruber

arr. Dan Forrest ASCAP

This arrangement of "Silent Night" brought the house down at the end of our holiday concert in 2019. Now, the Greenwich Choral Society would like to end this very difficult year with this beautiful video as a gift to you and your family. This video is our hope for peace, health, love, and a better 2021 for you and all of the world!

Happy New Year!

"He Watching Over Israel"

by Felix Mendelssohn

"He Watching Over Israel", from the oratorio "Elijah, Op. 70", by Felix Mendelssohn, premiered August 26, 1846, in Birmingham, England. Mendelssohn believed that the life of the prophet Elijah epitomized the evolution of the Jewish faith. So, during this season of Passover - enjoy this movement from Elijah - He watching over Israel, slumbers not nor sleeps.

"See the Conqu'ring Hero Comes!"

George Frideric Handel

No, he doesn't have a vaccine.

But Judas Maccabeus did save the Jews from an idolatrous Syrian king, a victory that's commemorated each year at Chanukah.

Please enjoy this video of George Frideric Handel's glorious victory march.

Happy Chanukah!

"Adeste Fideles"

"O Come All Ye Faithful"

The Christmas carol "Adeste Fideles" - better known as "O Come All Ye Faithful" is a carol that would have been performed, along with many other classical music pieces, for the Greenwich Choral Society's annual holiday concerts. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has brought all live performances to a halt and so Maestro Mueller, accompanist James Wetzel and the Greenwich Choral Society present this gift to you as a reminder of the beauty and joy that the GCS brings each and every holiday season! We hope that we will be able to present our traditional holiday concert for you in person in 2021. Happy Holidays!


We're creepy and we're kooky, mysterious and spooky,

We really are the Greenwich Choral Society.

Our house is a museum, where people come to listen,

We really are the Greenwich Choral Society.

So get a witches shawl on, a broom-stick you can crawl on, 

We're gonna pay a call on but first listen to this .....BOO!


arr. James E. Moore

May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again, until we meet again,

may God, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May the sun make your days bright,

may the stars illuminate your nights.

May the flowers bloom along your path,

your house stand firm against the storm.

And until we meet again, until we meet again,

may God, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
