Another Christmas Songbook
Soirees Musicales Quintette
As the concert title indicates, this program continues our exploration of Christmas music beyond the familiar carol settings. The selection of artsongs, duets, cantatas and lesser known carols is drawn from various parts of Europe and across more than three centuries. The inclusion of some baroque works featuring strings and harpsichord adds another new strand to our programming. Our audiences for the original ‘A Christmas Songbook’ program of several years ago were delighted by the anthology approach, with its interwoven narrative and connections across diverse places and times. We look forward to sharing this next Christmas musical adventure with you.
