#ClassicsaDay #ClassicalChristmas Week 1

December is a time of traditions. And the Classics a Day feed is no different. We continue our tradition of making Classical Christmas our December theme. 

The challenge is to post music related to the season. So sacred works for Advent and Christmas, secular works about winter, or even just music written and/or premiered in December. 

Here are my posts for the first week in December (short though it was).

12/01/22 Claudio Monteverdi: Magnificat

The Magnificat (My soul magnifies the Lord) is Mary’s response to the angel Gabriel. Monteverdi wrote this setting for St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, where he served for many years.

12/02/22 Charles Tomlinson Griffes: A Winter Landscape

Griffes wrote this in 1912, the same year he composed “The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Khan,” one of his most popular works.
