Welcome to Exsultet!

Who are we?

Exsultet is an auditioned women’s chorus performing a repertoire of choral literature across musical periods and cultures in residence at First Congregational Church in Holliston, Massachusetts. For Exsultet, music and the spoken word are intimately related.  But this unity does not stop at choral music – our concerts also incorporate readings, drama, and poetry. The beauty inherent in the music is reflected in the drama the audience experiences through our actors. Our innovative novel-in-a-concert format draws you into the drama through fusion of action, poetry, and song. The members of Exsultet invite you to be transported to another time and another place at one of our performances. We few, we happy few, love making music and challenging ourselves to present concerts which enlighten and entertain. Join us for an exciting season of music, drama, and poetry.

Exsultet’s Mission

    • to give women an opportunity to join together to make music;
    • to showcase the works of up and coming composers and arrangers;
    • to feature the talents of local musicians and actors;
    • to offer compelling performances of choral music from disparate cultures and eras;
    • to combine performance and advocacy by focusing on important community issues and partnering with other local organizations; and
  • to instill a love of the choral arts in young people through our youth chorus, Jubilate!
