The Christmas Connection

Christmas carols across the centuries


While thoughts of Christmas music usually turn to carols and choirs, many original instrumental works have been written for the season-including one that spawned a carol of its own.

In this hour we'll explore some of the most interesting, from the Baroque to the present day, including works by Corelli, Mendelssohn, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Grainger, and Bartok.
