Mezzo-so­pra­nos Deb­o­rah Do­man­ski and Drea Press­ley take turns in the solo spot­light from one per­for­mance to the next; you can learn in ad­vance which singer is sched­uled for which per­for­mance by con­sult­ing wwww.santafe­pro­mu­sica.com. They’re joined in each con­cert by Pro Mu­sica’s in­stru­men­tal­ists, play­ing on mod­ern in­stru­ments. Per­for­mances take place each evening at 6 and 8 p.m., from Satur­day, Dec. 19, through Thurs­day, Dec. 24. This year’s in­stall­ment of “A Baroque Christ­mas” in­cludes Han­del’s Con­certo Grosso in D ma­jor (Op. 6, No. 5), Vi­valdi’s motet “Longe mala, um­brae, ter­rores,” selections by Jo­hann Chris­tian Bach, and such an­cient carols as “Als I Lay on Yoo­lis Night” and the Wex­ford Carol.
