The sounds of the season spread over stacks of books during an a cappella choral performance Sunday at the Prospect Heights Library.

Dressed in period costumes, the John Hersey High School Charles Dickens Carolers performed two half-hour sets of traditional holiday and madrigal music for library visitors, closing with a bouncy rendition of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."

 

The group, under the direction of Sara Michael, also performed Friday at the annual Arlington Heights tree-lighting event.
