Note: Don't miss your FREE SHOW at the close of this update!
Dear All: Suzi Digby is back, and most happily for us, has generously agreed once again to celebrate Advent with us by sharing her new recording, The Mystery of Christmas.
And as a special treat just for our Millennium fans, she's allowing us to email you one free song a day throughout Advent!
Watch your email; we'll be sending you a free Advent song every day from Dec 6th through Dec 24th. Plus, Suzi would also like to offer you a copy of her new recording as a free gift if you:
- Join Millennium of Music as a Bronze or higher member with a new membership
- Upgrade your current membership to Silver or Gold.
- Or give a gift membership for a friend or loved one.
So, apparently, Suzi Digby is Santa Claus! At least for us!
To claim your free CD, simply click one of those links above to upgrade or purchase your membership. Available while supplies last.
As she has done for some years now with her ORA Singers, Suzi Digby blends the old and new skillfully and with great devotion to living composers.
The framing device features two settings of O magnum mysterium, the first by William Byrd and the last by our own Morten Lauridsen. Between are settings of the Coventry Carol, Nova! Nova!, There is no rose, and Now may we singen in their original forms followed by contemporary interpretations.
Our free show will be from last year when we celebrated Suzi (including an interview), and there is one bit of news for 2019: we went into the Public Radio Archives (kept, most elegantly, at the University of Maryland), and got some scores of past programs from the 1990s. It is slow work getting those transcribed and up on the site, but we are working on that. When we do, we will have more early music from early Millennium of Music!
Best wishes for the season ahead to one and all!
