BCG presents a holiday program of works accompanied by Frequency 49 wind quintet. The featured work is the world premiere of a BCG commission, Missa Brevis for the Refugees of War by Saratoga composer Henry Mollicone. The program also includes Gaudete, a charming arrangement of traditional Christmas melodies by Swedish composer Anders Öhrwall, and Daniel Pinkham’s Christmas Jubilations, which sets out-of-the-ordinary Christmas texts. Here is the complete program:
|Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis||Dale E. Ramsey|
|Missa Brevis – For the Refugees of War||Henry Mollicone|
|Christmas Jubilations||Daniel Pinkham|
|O Magnum Mysterium||Craig Kingsbury|
|Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful||Stephen Paulus|
