Wir wuenschen eine frohe Weihnacht

Our 2020 Christmas Concert & Dinner has been cancelled due to the pandemic, so we’ve put together a short Christmas video. The soundtrack is our rendition of “Wir wuenschen eine frohe Weihnacht” from our “O Tannenbaum” CD that we recorded a while back. We traditionally sing this song at the end of the Christmas Concert. The photos of the choir and Sankt Nikolaus are from our 2015 Christmas Concert & Dinner and were taken by Carrie Wilkey.

The video has been uploaded to MMC channel on YouTube. If you’re interested in seeing it, please click here!

Ein Prosit – the video

Christmas Songs

We were disappointed that we had to cancel this year’s Christmas concert due to the weather. So at our rehearsal last week we recorded three of the songs we would have sung at the concert as our gift to you. Frohe Weihnachten!

Songs of Nellingen

Danny Proud, one of our Tenors, assembled original songs about GI’s, humor, love and yearning from the US Army barracks of the 421st Medical Company (Air Ambulance) at Nellingen Kaserne, during the Vietnam War.

All of the proceeds from the sale of the CDs will go to Guitars4Vets, a non-profit organization providing music therapy for disabled veterans.

Schubert Sanctus / Heilig

Madison Männerchor was invited to participate in the Holy Hill Centennial celebration! On July 15th, 2006, MMC sang several songs, including Beethoven’s “Die Himmel rühmen,” Mozart’s “Bundeslied,” and Franz Schubert’s “Heilig,” the Sanctus from the G major mass. We were able to see, once again, how magnificent the basilica is!

A View of the Basilica of Holy Hill

Built at the highest point in that part of Wisconsin, the basilica offers a truly commanding view of the area. And the church acoustics! Wow. This building is truly a suitable praise to the Almighty.

Steal Away

“Steal Away” (“Steal Away To Jesus”) is an American Negro spiritual. The song is well-known by variations of the chorus:

Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus!
