Christmas is an amazing season—filled with music that is fantastically gorgeous…or truly tawdry! I have always been drawn to music of this season ever since (as a boy soprano at age 4) I sang “The Birthday of a King” and “The Holy City” for audiences who were brought to tears by my performance. Of course, they also loved hearing me sing “Barnatro” in Swedish!
At age 6, I attended a performance of Handel’s Messiah in Austin, Minnesota and was hooked on Handel from then on. So, assembling an array of music for Christmas that might be a bit ‘out of the ordinary’ was easy for me! I hope you enjoy these selections as much as I have had bringing them to you.
