For many folks, a song in a foreign language can sound unfriendly, but we certainly want to introduce songs from different countries to our listeners! Here’s one attempt to cross the language barrier–a track from our 2013 Holiday concert (in German), with an introduction to the song, along with a photo montage which includes an English translation. Click here for “Die Könige” (The Kings) by Peter Cornelius. Happy 12th day of Christmas!
From our 2013 Holiday concert, here is
a pair of songs by American folklorist John Jacob Niles that shine with a radiant simplicity. We invite you to hear “What Songs Were Sung,” performed by Gerald Seminatore, and the classic folk song “I Wonder as I Wander,” performed by Barbara Kilduff. Libor Dudas is at the piano. Our sincere wishes for a happy and musical Christmas season!
