On this Continuum you'll hear a special program of early Christmas music performed by the New Orleans Musica da Camera. This is music from their CD, Natus Est, directed by Continuum hosts Milton Scheuermann and Thais St. Julien. A wide variety of early and some relatively recent music is on the program, including a very spirited medley of New Mexican dances. Included also are selections from the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X (1221-1284). Recordings used are: Natus Est (New Orleans Musica da Camera) - Centaur CRC 2208: and, Forse Che Si, Forse Che No (Ferrara Ensemble) - Fonti Musicali fmd 182.
