What's on Great Sacred Music, Sunday, December 2, 2012
Date: December 1, 2012
Location: North Carolina, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
Music for the First Sunday of Advent this week. I have never liked a lot of talk on Great Sacred Music.
Always try to keep my comments to a minimum. With that in mind let me know how you like the
groupings I am doing this morning during the first hour. I will play two or three works back to back
with brief comments at the beginning of the set and brief comments at the end.
I am putting the finishing touches on Lullabies and Carols a special season program which will air
four times this year just before Christmas. I will give you the dates later. Also looking forward to
sharing Christmas morning with you. I will be on air from six until noon.
Don't forget Sean Burton's Sunday in Siouxland at 11 a.m. eastern. Sean is featuring Glorias this week.
Have a great week and thanks for your continued support of Great Sacred Music.
