O holy night

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The De­cem­ber count­down of Christ­mas mu­sic be­gins with a con­cert given by the Santa Fe Symphony Cho­rus and the Santa Fe Women’s Ensem­ble (both di­rected by Linda Raney), along with the brass play­ers of the Santa Fe Symphony and the or­gan at the Cathe­dral Basil­ica of St. Fran­cis of As­sisi (131 Cathe­dral Place). This year’s in­stall­ment of what is a pop­u­lar an­nual event in­cludes choral selections by Sweel­inck, Brit­ten, and Mor­ton Lau­rid­sen; in­stru­men­tal pieces by Gio­vanni Gabrieli and Holst; and an au­di­ence sin­ga­long of fa­mil­iar carols. There are no ad­vance reser­va­tions for this con­cert, which is free. It be­gins at 7 p.m. on Fri­day, Dec. 4, but savvy Santa Feans know that it pays to ar­rive early and stand in line for a bit un­til the doors open, since the pews tend to fill up. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 505-983-3530. — James M. Keller
