Here’s what host Alexa Petrenko has to say about this week’s episode:
This week we embrace the pristine stillness of winter with a meditative seasonal album by the exceptional English ensemble Voces8. Winter is a time of withdrawal but also rebirth, as reflected in beautiful songs and carols by Praetorius, Part, Holst, Gjeilo, Rachmaninoff and others.
In the words of their director, countertenor Barnaby Smith,” sparse yet majestic, inspiring a feeling of both solitude and union, Winter captures the fragile beauty of this most evocative of seasons.”
Sunday Night at the Opera” airs Sunday nights at 9 PM with host Alexa Petrenko.
