A Salzburg Christmas: Echoes of Christmas Past
The Story of Franz Gruber penning “Stille Nacht” on christmas Eve for guitar and voice at a small salzburg church because the organ was not working is well known to most people. This small “village Christmas” scene will be contrasted with the much grander musical celebration in Salzburg’s cathedral by the likes of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Tomaso Albinoni, and the centerpiece of the program, Michael Haydn’s eight-movement Weihnachtsresponorien for Matins on Christmas Day. St. Martin’s will be joined by members of the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado in the festive set.
