Product Description

Winter is a season whose associations are as varied as its experiences. For many the world over it is bitterly cold and dark; some see no daylight for weeks. For others, winter is a mild season. This rich variety is at the heart of this program which celebrates winter from a variety of angles. Christmas is a central theme. Maxine Thévenot directs Polyphony: Voices of New Mexico, the all-female choir. The music, including some premiere recordings, comes from Britain, Europe, Canada, and the US encompassing the sacred and secular. Lynn Gorman DeVelder accompanies the chorus on harp and Maxine Thévonot accompanies the choir on Organ.
