with Angela Mariani
The Christmas Oratorio Quilt - This week on Harmonia, as the winter nights get colder, we┬'ll keep warm with an ┬"oratorio quilt,┬" weaving together music for the season from France, Germany, and Italy┬-by composers both devout and mischievous. Our featured release showcases medieval Christmas music performed by Gothic Voices.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Many familiar Christmas songs are based on or derived from popular, secular melodies. If you┬'re familiar with the Christmas song WHAT CHILD IS THIS you┬'ve probably also heard it called GREENSLEEVES. That┬'s because William Chatterton Dix┬'s lyrics are sung to the tune of a very old English melody by that name. You┬'ll hear Greensleeves and other happy holiday tunes on Sunday Baroque this weekend.

Sunday at the Symphony
with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
With the Boston Symphony and Pops performing during the summer, RCA Victor would record the orchestra shortly after a Tanglewood concert. We┬'ll hear some classic Beethoven and Debussy captured in this manner, as well as the result of a Boston Pops session, when the Hall was so hot the orchestra stripped down to their underwear! Also a jewel from the BSO┬'s 75th anniversary, the Symphony #6 of Bohuslav Martinu.
