I don’t know when it began really, but the music from the Baroque Era has been one of my favorite styles of music for a very long time. Its appeal led to my immersion in the music and craft of the period for over 15 years when I was a harpsichord builder. This music has a particular sense of beauty and order, of movement and expression that I find very enriching and moving. One of the times I find this music most meaningful is the Advent and Christmas season. So this year the choir and orchestra will be bringing to our worship a Baroque Christmas. (more…)
