Program: #07-50, Air Date: 12/03/07

Over the years, we have celebrated this ensemble's many Christmas programs during December--this year, festivities from the time of the founding of the Dutch republic and Holland's Golden Age.

NOTE: All of the music on this program is performed by the ensemble Early Music New York directed by Frederick Renz. This is the sixth in the ensemble Christmas series--the first four being:

A Medieval Christmas--CD # EC-9001
A Renaissance Christmas--CD # EC-9003
A Baroque Christmas--CD # EC-9004
A Colonial Christmas--CD # EC-9006
A Bohemian Christmas--CD # EC-9007.
A Dutch Christmas--CD # EC-9009.
You may order these at the ensemble's web site:

www.EarlyMusicNY.org

or purchase them at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The program looks at a century-and-a-half of music from the Lowlands for the Holy season.
