“Maria Durch Ein Dornwald Ging” by Calmus

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

CalmusAfter 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.

"Magnum Mysterium" by Chanticleer

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

Fred Child and the producers of Performance Today have created a substantial repository of free music from the live concerts and in-studio performances they broadcast on public radio. This year, three ensembles — Calmus, New York Polyphony, and Chanticleer — are offering free downloads of some of these performances.

I’ll post one track from each group during the course of the day, but I recommend you head over to PT’s website and download them for yourself.
