Again, all in sound, almost no words—we hear music for the season newly recorded by Anonymous 4, Lionheart, and the Westminster Cathedral choir.
For 150 years composers of the Lowlands defined European music—we'll hear some of the greatest Christmas motets from Dufay to Lassus.
NOTE: All of the music on this program is from the recording made by the Choir of the Monks of Chevetogne directed by Fr. Maxime Gimenez.
