The Folger Consort captures a distinctively Spanish spirit this holiday season with choir, organ, winds, and strings. The Christmas repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries, Spain's "Golden Age" of arts and literature, is particularly ravishing -- with sonorous and radiant motets, lively and energetic villançicos (carols), and dazzling instrumental works.
With guest vocalists The Concord Ensemble and instrumentalists Marilyn Boenau, Alexander Bonus, Charles Weaver, Webb Wiggins, and Marcia Young.
