The Christmas Connection

Christmas carols across the centuries



    Stephen Peithman


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.

Airs December 24th at 5:00 pm on the Music Station.
