In Handel Choir of Baltimore's midwinter concert, Magnificat and Song of Athene by John Tavener and Arvo Pärt's My Heart's in the Highlands offer evocative ancient melodies and harmonies in appealing modern settings. The Choir also premières Song of the Shulamite, a sumptuous canticle of love on Song of Solomon texts by American composer Donald McCullough. Folk songs of the British Isles round out the program, here arranged by Holst, Grainger and Baltimore's own Stephen Caracciolo, among others.
