Festival of 9 Lessons, Tallis, Morehouse & More!
At 10AM, hear this year's "Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols" live from King's College, Cambridge on IPR Classical. Then, at 11 AM, the Tallis Scholars - celebrating their 40th anniversary - present a beautiful concert from Boston. At noon, hear this year's Christmas at Luther, recorded in Decorah. But wait, there's more! At 1PM, we celebrate the Benjamin Britten centennial with a program centered on his Ceremony of Carols, and at 2PM, join us for one of America's great holiday traditions, the 87th Christmas Concert by the combined choirs of Morehouse and Spelman Colleges, two of the most prestigious historically black institutions in the nation. And at 7PM, hear Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" read complete by Doug Brown (you can hear it in the morning, starting at 9AM, on IPR News/Talk).
