On December 18 and 19, CUUPs celebrated the rebirth of the sun with its fourth annual Winter Solstice Singing Ritual. With music led by Beth Syverson and narration by Christine Hernandez and Tim Titus, along with a whole group wonderful readers, we honored the darkest night and let our lights shine through myth, music, and candelight.
This is always our most popular ritual, and this year seemed to be the most well-received yet. For the first time ever, the “audience” called the singers back into the sanctuary for a well-deserved curtain call. The new light may have been born right then and there!
Special thanks to Beth and the Solstice Singers for all their hard work to prepare for a wonderful service. Enjoy the video of Debbie Siegfried, Sam Siegfried, Beth Syverson, Amy Tompkins, and Susan Shaw performing “Kore Evohe!”
