Lost Saints of Winter

In America today, there is one mega-holiday that dominates the coldest months: Christmas. But the Europe of ages past was awash in winter holidays, some of which are still celebrated in grand style to this day. In a time and place where separation of church and state were unthinkable, all holidays were religious, and composers wrote opulent music to accompany the festivities for St. Nicholas, St. James, St. Thomas of Canterbury, the Immaculate Conception of Mary, and most important of all, the feast of the Three Kings—also known as the twelfth day of Christmas. In this concert, Vox Resonat explores some of the music written for these lost saints of winter.
