Praetorius Christmas Vespers

Praetorius Christmas Vespers

Jeannette Sorrell’s beloved holiday program weaves the extraordinary works of 17th-century composer Michael Praetorius into a Vespers service. The cathedral resounds with the splendor of trumpets, sackbuts, cornettos, antiphonal choirs, lutes, strings and recorders. Children’s voices lead the forces in this haunting and joyous celebration of the Christ child.
