Holiday Music Picks

December 25, 2008

Here's the playlist from the holiday-themed classical music radio show I hosted on KALW 91.7 FM on Sunday. It's heavily weighted in favor of choral and other vocal works, but, hey, I'm a sucka for singing and much of the holiday repertoire is written for voices:

Benjamin Britten - A Ceremony of Carols - Toronto Children's Chorus

Olivier Messiaen - La Nativite Du Seigneur - Olivier Messiaen, organ

Traditional - "El Desembre Congelat" from Angels' Glory - Kathleen Battle, soprano; Christopher Parkening, guitar

Marc-Antoine Charpentier - Messe de Minuit pour Noël - Aradia Ensemble

Heinrich Isaac - "Kyrie" from Missa Virgo Prudentissima - Artists' Vocal Ensemble

Traditional - "Hubava Milka" from Wintersongs - Kitka

Truman Bullard - "Chanukah Suite" from Home for the Holidays - Eaken Piano Trio

Danny Elfman - "The Grand Finale" from Edward Scissorhands - Original Soundtrack recording featuring the California Paulist Choristers

Phil Kline - "Hallelujah!" from Messiah Remix - Phil Kline

Traditional - "Riu Riu Chiu" from Our Heart's Joy - Chanticleer
