>> Spring 2012 Clearlakes Chorale concert — May 12, 2013.
The musical program for the Clearlakes Chorale’s December 2014 concert, per its theme of “An Italian Christmas” (having done “Christmas in France” in 2013) will be as follows:
Antonio Vivaldi: Gloria in D Major
In Notte Placida
Quanno Nascette Ninno
Dormi, Dormi O Bel Bambin
Venite Adoriamo il Nato Bambino
Mille Cherubini in Coro
Venite su Pastori
Astro del Ciel
Con i Rami D’Agrifoglio
Gloria in Terra
They have done the Vivaldi “Gloria in D Major”, to great success, in 2008 (though that was before ‘our time’)
and many of those singing this year were part of that concert.
This should be another great, uplifting, getting you into the mood of Christmas concert.
I can’t wait, though, I will be fortunate enough to listen to parts of it over the
next 11 weeks — only my desire to take an hour’s perambulation
around lovely Wolfeboro, at night, cutting into how much I get to listen.
Here is a YouTube sampling of Vivaldi’s “Gloria in Excelis Deo in D Major” IF you are not familiar with it.
The chances are that Clearlakes will sound even better!
