In a holiday concert featuring works spanning five centuries, mountains, stars, trees, roses, and the heavens are among the themes of nature SFCA explores. Featured contemporary composers include Josh Habermann, Herbert Howells, Zoltán Kodály, John Jacob Niles, Roger Nixon, Daniel Pinkham, Francis Poulenc, and Sergei Taneyev. These are heard beside 16th and 17th c. works by Johannes Eccard, Orlando di Lasso, Jacob Handl, and Michael Praetorius, and world premieres by Composer-in-Residence Mark Winges and Composer-Not-in-Residence Eleanor Aversa.
For those who cherish traditional carols / works, the program includes Britten’s The Holly and the Ivy, I wonder as I wander, Lo, how a rose ‘er blooming, Videntes Stellam, and a zippy off-beat arrangement of Deck the Halls.
