Quincy Choral Society

The Quincy Choral Society is based in historic Quincy, Massachusetts. QCS has performed in the Boston area for 25 years, as well as in Europe in Austria, the Czech Republic, England, France, Italy, Scotland and Wales. They have performed in Chartres Cathedral, The Hallows by the Tower (of London), at the Fringe Festival in Edinborough, and in the Church of St. Nicholas in Prague. Their most recent tour was in July 2005 where they sang in Northern Italy and performed at St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice.

Under the talented direction of John Nichols, the Quincy Choral Society has grown to more than 80 members in the last 10 years. QCS musicians are from all walks of life: business people, doctors, lawyers, teachers, homemakers, students and retirees. Members live between Boston and Cape Cod, and share the common love of singing together.

QCS has performed a wide variety of music, including:
*Major classical choral masterpieces, such as: Bach's Mass in B Minor; Beethoven's Missa Solemnis; Brahms' A German Requiem; Handel's Messiah; Haydn's Creation; Mendelssohn's Elijah; Mozart's Requiem; Schubert's Mass in A Flat and Vivaldi's Gloria.
*Major works by contemporary composers, such as: Britten's Ceremony of Carols; Bush's Christmas Cantata; Copland's In the Beginning and Rutter's Magnificat and Requiem.
*Spirituals, such as: My Lord, What a Mornin'; Ezekial Saw de Wheel; Ain't Got Time to Die; Somebody's Knockin' at Your Door and Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho.
*Showtune medleys, such as: Gershwin's Porgy and Bess; Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel; Schonberg's Les Miserables and Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera.
*Seasonal songs, patriotic songs, and much more!

aka Pelican Groove

Guest performers a.k.a. Pelican Groove have performed a cappella in the Boston area since the mid-90s. Twice they tied for 1st Runner-Up in the Boston Regional Harmony Sweepstakes.

Over their history, they've performed at hundreds of events, clubs, parties, community concerts and made live appearances on television and radio. They've sung on the hallowed grass of Fenway Park (Go Red Sox!), the cobblestones of Fanueil Hall Marketplace and the marble proscenium of Boston's Hatch Shell/Esplanade.

a.k.a. Pelican Groove's CD "Plunge" showcases their diverse repertoire of classic R&B, doo-wop, 70's soul, 90's alternative, pop originals and more. a.k.a. Pelican Groove's specialty is introducing audiences to the sound of high-tech, groove-based a cappella ...a sound audiences love!

Jeff Cruikshank
Guest performer Jeff Cruikshank took his first and only guitar lesson at the age of 11. He subsequently taught himself folk guitar, slowly during each school year then at breakneck speed over the summers in order to keep up with his cousins' band. He plays, writes music and lyrics, and performs locally in the Boston area.

Jeff is a writer by profession and has published over 30 books that he's authored himself, co-authored, written under contract and written under pen names. His latest mystery, written under his own name, is titled "Murder at the B-School" and was released in October 2004.

Great album. Fills a void in holiday music. Wonderful fundraising idea!
This CD is a welcome addition to our holiday music. Let's not jump right from summer into Christmas music. And, what a great way for organizations to raise money. The music is all beautiful. And the performances are superb!

Ted Daiber

Beuatiful collectiion of spiritual music for a special time of year
Awesome CD! I've now bought 5 copies, and I keep thinking of new people I want to share it with! A truly wonderful selection of music, and great performances. Congratulations and thank you!

Thayer Davis

A delightful return to inspiring music voiced with charm

Dallas Hancock

It makes the day complete!
What a beautiful addition to the Thanksgiving festivities; the aroma of the turkey cooking, the love of family gathered and now the Thanksgiving CD-- it completes the setting and brings back wonderful childhood memories. What a wonderful compilation of Thanksgiving holiday music for the entire family--thanks!

Amy Robinson

Soothing & relaxing worshiping God....easy to listen to.
I enjoy listening the CD in the car while I drive back and forth to work - the kids don't act up and it's a calm ride. It's a great way to worship the Lord!

Emily Craven

A diverse and enthusiatically-produced collection of lovely Thanksgiving tunes.

David L. Browder

The traditional Thanksgiving music is refreshing and I thoroughly love the kids
I highly recommend this cd to anyone who appreciates the traditional sounds of Thanksgiving music. The kids selections are great too! In fact, my grandchildren just love them.

Excellent selection and beautifully done. Very pleased with it.
I loved the CD. I used it today with the Church School group, and they loved the Turkey song; also Over the river and Through the Wood. We sang both songs together; I gave them the words. The other hymns were introductory to the lesson and background during the lesson. It went over very well.

Marilyn W.

Beautifully performed assortment of Thanksgiving music
This CD is a community-based collection of beautiful songs appropriate for Thanksgiving. The Quincy Choral Society performs many of the pieces, and there are two charming children's songs as well. There is also a lovely solo rendition of All Good Gifts by Laurie Macintosh.
