Music of the Baroque is one of Chicago's finest performing ensembles and like every other classical group in Chicago, they'll be doing a holiday concert. But in addition to the usual Baroque pieces by Schutz and Gabrieli, they'll also be performing Britten's beloved Ceremony of Carols - an unusual piece for boys chorus and harp. There are numerous recordings But seeing it live with the processionals is one of the best entrees into the world of 20th century music that you can get.
