The modern Chapel is a meeting-place for diverse musical expression, a place where choral polyphony has long had a home. The term “a cappella” (“in the style of the chapel”) evokes the sound of a Renaissance chorus unaided by any church organ. This original collection of 14 sacred and biblical rounds (a “poor man’s polyphony”) […]

I’m an admittedly nostalgic guy who unabashedly loves Christmas music, and every year I think to myself ‘I really should have written a Christmas piece this year’. Christmas 2015 followed a similar pattern, except […]

A traditional Catalan Christmas song dating from the 16th Century. Various versions of the Catalan text exist, including two verses included here that seem to have little to do with Christmas. “Fum”is the Catalan word for smoke, but here most likely suggests the strumming of a guitar or perhaps drum beats. A phonetic (for English-speakers) […]
