Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Holiday Celebration - All around the world, winter holidays are celebrated, and their music is wonderful to hear regardless of which tradition you observe. Bill gets us started with Nova Stella, medieval Italian Christmas music with a very early staging of the nativity. We will enjoy Christmas in Paris with music from Debussy, Charpentier and Poulenc and a Polynesian traditional hymn, ¬"Anau Oia Ea,¬" plus an excerpt from Amahl and the Night Visitors from the original television production. Bill plays us one of his favorites from Ernest Bloch, Sacred Service. On our final day we will listen to Vaughan Williams¬' Fantasia on Christmas Carols, and this week¬'s celebration will end with more holiday cheer from David Bowie and Bing Crosby.
