Glad Tidings Of Joy

Airs Thursday, December 26 at 2 p.m. Celebrate Christmas this year with an exceptional program, taking us from medieval England and Germany to baroque London and Leipzig with the music of Henry Purcell and Johann Sebastian Bach. From the glorious cathedral chant, Veni Emmanuel, to Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, this program offers some of the most splendid Christmas music ever to come from northern Europe. Two renowned musical institutions band together in this Early-Music tour de force: the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral Indianapolis, directed by Dr. Dana Marsh; and the Early Music Institute of the Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University, directed by Paul Elliott.
