I’m thinking of an “Italian Christmas” with the centerpiece for the concert being an English translation of Respighi’s “Laud to the Nativity.” It’s a beautiful piece, about 35 minutes long, and everything I’ve read about it laments the fact that it isn’t performed more often. I’ll be looking at pairing it with other shorter Italian works. Currently on my short list are Palestrina’s “Hodie Christus Natus Est,” and two carols, “How Unto Bethlehem” (Parker/Shaw arrangement) and “Gesu Bambino.” Let me know if you have any suggestions.
The UWM students who recorded our "Missa Gaia" for our April concert will be getting back to me with a copy of the recording. In the meantime, Barbara(P) has put the the recording she made at Missa_Gaia.html.
