Two works frame this program of early 20th century English Christmas music: Gerald Finzi’s In terra pax and Gustav Holst’s Christmas Day. The program also features carol arrangements by John Rutter, Harold Darke, and Holst. Written during a time when composers looked to the past for inspiration, their music pays homage to the English holiday tradition through a rich repertoire that speaks to the heart of the Christmas spirit.
