Director’s Notes, Robert Russell: The sun rises in the east, and Christmas at the Cathedral for the past 30 years happens the first weekend in December. Join us for a program of familiar and sublime choral music with brass and organ accompaniment. Of special interest: Paul Halley’s dynamic “Freedom Trilogy,” Eric Whitacre’s luminous “Lux Aurumque,” and a glorious setting with brass and organ of the final movement of Vaughan Williams’ Hodie, set to John Milton’s poem “Ring Out, Ye Crystal Spheres.”
