This week we celebrate a “Madrigal for Christmas” with the FPCD choir. Madrigals are an ancient musical art (well, 400+ years ago). In our version, music is juxtaposed with poetry or Scripture to tell the story of Jesus’ birth. This captures the emotion of the story– of a young mother giving birth in a stall; accompanied not by a physician in a hospital but surrounded only by Joseph, animals, brilliant star, and angelic choir announcing God-with-Us is born.
Mikhail McDaniels plays clarinet, with Dameron Growe on the piano.
