Italian Christmas

"Nativity" by fra Angelico

Join the Plymouth Chorale Saturday, December 15th at 3pm or Sunday, December 16th at 7pm for an Italian Christmas. The centerpiece of the concert will be an English translation of Ottorino Respighi’s “Laud to the Nativity.” It’s a beautiful piece, described here by reviewer Robert Sabin:

The melodies are sensuous and supple yet suffused with reverence and wonder.  And the detail of the work reveals a master hand.  It is deceptively simple and transparent, yet every touch tells.  The vocal writing alone is an endless series of colors and textures which seem completely spontaneous.*

*Ottorino Respighi's "Laud to the Nativity" by Lee G.  Barrow;  The Choral Journal Vol. 28, No. 1, August1987
