Wild Woods and Starry Nights: a San Francisco Choral Artists concert (Oakland)
Christmas music is pervaded by images of nature ... come wander with us out into the starry night, among the running deer, holly & ivy, evergreens and snow on snow. Gorgeous a cappella singing sampling from 1000 years of motets, hymns, and carols, we offer choral masterpieces by Praetorius, Lassus, Poulenc, Howells, Kodály and others.
