Four settings—by Tadja Vulc, Rihards Dubra, Melissa Dunphy, and Kile Smith—are Northwest premieres. Other works include Scheidt’s “A Child is Born in Bethlehem”; Georg Schumann’s “Vom himmel hoch”; Łukaszewski’s “Ave Maria”; two Christmas works by Georgy Sviridov; and “O nata lux” by Morten Lauridsen.
