“Awaken, and sing songs of joy

as delights heart and spirit…”

Music for the season – Music for all seasons.  Bach’s Magnificat soars and sings, inspiring choirs and listeners for nearly three centuries.  Cantata No. 110, Unser Mund sei voll Lachens (May our mouth be full of laughter) radiates joy for the coming of man.  And Martin Luther’s own hymn, Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her (From Heaven Above to Earth I Come) is renewed by Igor Stravinsky.  The chorus and orchestra resonate in the sonic splendor of the Basilica of St. Adalbert.
