Description

Star of Wonder showcases music from around the world that evokes the winter lights of the holiday season. The program covers over a thousand years of choral music, from medieval chant to contemporary works. Centerpieces include the ethereally beautiful Stars by Ēriks Ešenvalds, Morten Lauridsen’s O magnum mysterium, and Eric Whitacre’s shimmering Lux Aurumque. Also featured are recent works by Judith Weir, John Rutter, and Gabriel Jackson.
