A Cappella Voices: Terpsichore

BU vocal group performs holiday songs


The holidays are here, and what better way to celebrate than with seasonal songs from some of Boston University’s best a cappella groups? Over the coming days, BU Today will showcase a different group. The performances were recorded at the Castle. A cappella, which means “in the manner of the chapel,” was first used to describe church music composed for unaccompanied voices, and now refers to any vocal music performed without instruments.

In our second installment, Terpsichore sings “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” written Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff.

Watch more holiday a cappella performances here.

    Wonderful music. For those of you unaware of the meaning of the name, Terpsichore was the Greek muse involved with dance and music. The early music composer Michael Praetorius also composed a number of pieces encompassed under “Dances from Terpsichore”. Keep up the great tradition. Merry Christmas!
