A Classical Christmas with Lots of Surprises

Have you watched The Holiday yet? Love Hard (on Netflix)? At least you caught The Shop Around the Corner… Christmas in Connecticut? My, my you ARE behind. Let’s get you in the holiday spirit right here and right now… after all Christmas is Coming. A Ceremony of Carols!

This is part three of a three-part series. We began with a rebroadcast (with new intro) of my very first show to be broadcast over the air… Lost (but amazing!) Christmas Songs. Last week it was all about brand new Christmas songs. Now we have a special collection of music in the classical style… we’ll call it classical with a small “c.” . Some from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic Eras. And a few pieces (see Rutter and Whitacre!) are very recent.
