Mozart's Attic Thursday Nov 30th at 10:00 PM

Nov 27, 2017

Mozart's Attic is chock full of music for the holiday season, and this week we'll begin with some Christmas music by Bach, Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols, some ancient Hebrew texts and a modern piece by Ernest Bloch, and music from Antoine Brumel, Claude de Sermisy, and Lorenzo Perosi.
Then we'll devote the second half of the program to a performance of Olivier Messaien's Nativite du Seigneur. It's one of the major works in the organ literature of the last century, and Simon Preston performs it on the organ at WEstminster Abbey.
