“Maria Durch Ein Dornwald Ging” by Calmus
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
After the warm reception to yesterday’s selection from Performance Today's free repository of classical music goodness, why not post one from the Leipzig ensemble Calmus? Arranged by Ludwig Bohme, this traditional Christmas carol dates back to the sixteenth century. If there are any music scholars out there, please tell us more about the origins of this lovely piece.
We’ll post one final track from New York Polyphony this evening, but I highly recommend you head over to PT’s website and download them for yourself before the link expires on January 1, 2012.
