St. Martin's Chamber Choir presents A Salzburg Christmas: Echoes of Christmas Past

Friday, December 13, 2013

The story of Franz Gr├╝ber penning "Stille Nacht" on Christmas Eve for guitar and voice at a small Salzburg church because the organ was not working is well known to most people. This small "village Christmas" scene will be contrasated with the much grander musical celebrations in Salzburg's cathedral by the likes of Wolfgang Mozart, Tomaso Albinoni, and the centerpiece of the program, Michael Haydn's eight-movement Weihnachtsresponsorien for Matins on Christmas Day. St. Martin's will be joined by members of the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado in this festive set.
