Folger Consort, the early music ensemble in residence at the Folger Shakespeare Library, celebrates the holiday season with seven concerts of Gloria!: A Baroque Italian Christmas December 13 through December 18, 2019 in the nave of St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill.

These concerts share the best that Baroque composers of Italy have to offer for the season, including concerti, cantatas, and sacred works from the 18th century. Folger Consort, led by Robert Eisenstein, (violin) and Christopher Kendall (lute and theorbo), will be joined by a Baroque orchestra, featuring soloists Joelle Monroe (trumpet) and Margaret Owens (oboe), with acclaimed soprano Emily Noël (Folger's Macbeth and The Second Shepherds' Play).
