The master storyteller also regales you with jokes and memories, plus tales of three classic Chanukah symbols: the menorah, the latke, and, of course, the dreidel. A good time for the whole family! (Request Hour will return next week)

7:00 Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin

“Incidentally Speaking” Bill articulates how music propels dramatic action and sustains poignant moments in performing arts. “Incidental music” may be a misnomer. It started with Greek dramas but, as Bill explains, music often plays a pivotal if not starring role. Example: in the opening scene of the play “Moderen” (The Mother) by Helge Rode, Nielsen’s two-minute “The Fog is Lifting” drives the tableau of a mother leaving her son. Works by Fauré, Mendelssohn, Debussy, and others are equally compelling.

“Fit for a King” “We’re going to have a ball this week,” Bill says, “listening to some glorious music and, in most cases, giving credit where credit is well due, to the people that commissioned these pieces.” Bill ushers in George I in England, whose favorite composer was Handel— both men were German-born, and it’s George I who started the tradition that continues today of standing during the “Hallelujah” Chorus of Messiah. Bill also connects Haydn, Scarlatti, and Walton to their savvy patrons, confirming that if you want to command the finest musicians, it’s good to be the king.

7:00 Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin

“Tudor Music” The House of Tudor reigned from Henry VII through Elizabeth I, and during this time, the arts were loved and supported by church and state alike. This support gave rise to a new type of English secular music, music that was not folk music and didn’t belong to the church. Though the Tudor poets are better known than the composers, the composers have left quite a legacy. On this edition of Exploring Music, we’ll listen to William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, and to Henry VIII, who himself wrote a number of pieces!

An annual and beloved Christmas tradition, “A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” is an extraordinary and memorable live service of word and music from the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge, England. Audiences will share in a live, world-wide Christmas Eve broadcast of a service of Biblical readings, carols, and related seasonal music (anthems a cappella and with organ accompaniment, and congregational hymns), presented by one of the world’s foremost choirs of men and boys and performed in an acoustically and architecturally renowned venue. This year’s broadcast will be the last service for Stephen Cleobury, King’s College Chapel Music Director, who has conducted the chapel choir since 1982.

7:00 Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin

“Bach Christmas Oratorio” For Christmas week, Bill explains the essence, resonance, and imagery in each of Bach’s six cantatas comprising the Christmas Oratorio -- written for the days of the Lutheran church year -- celebrating Christmas to Epiphany with intimate arias and spirited choruses. The Oratorio was first performed in the St. Thomas and St. Nicholas churches in Leipzig, Germany (where he was the “Thomaskantor,” or cantor at St. Thomas) in December 1734. The cantatas are performed by the Monteverdi Choir & English Baroque Soloists; Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir; Venice Baroque Orchestra; and Staatskapelle Dresden, respectively.

Winter holidays are celebrated around the world, and their music is wonderful to hear, regardless of which tradition you observe. Bill’s spirited selection starts in the 12th century with “Nova Stella”, medieval Italian Christmas music from Saint Francis of Assisi’s staging of the nativity; jazz pianist Dave Brubeck’s classical composition La Fiesta de la Posada, evoking a Mexican Christmas celebration; and Vaughan Williams’ “Fantasia on Christmas Carols”. We will enjoy this time of year in Paris with music from Debussy, and then travel to Polynesia for a traditional hymn, “Anau Oia Ea”. And then ending with an excerpt from Gian Carlo Menotti’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors” from the original television production. Turn on your radio, pour a cup of tea, cozy up to a warm fire, and enjoy the music!

Anglo-American ballads such as “The Cherry Tree Carol” and “A Virgin Unspotted” add a homespun seasonal touch.

3:00 La Nochebuena: Christmas with the Rose Ensemble (PRX)

In “La Nochebuena”, the Rose Ensemble explores the great variety of music that filled the royal court of Ferdinand and Isabella, and flooded the chapels and streets of Renaissance Spain. Serene choral music from 16th-century masters is balanced with spirited cantigas for solo voice and harp, Spanish-language villancicos from court and countryside, and lively dances for vihuela, harp and percussion. The Rose Ensemble will transport you to a time and place when the sacred met the earthy in celebration of the season.

7:00 Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin

“Exploring Two Very Different Worlds: Delius and Holst” Music of two English composers, Frederick Delius (1862-1934) and Gustav Holst (1874-1934): both born of German parentage, both dead in the same year, and with little else in common. We start with Delius, and in all the years that Bill played as a trombonist in orchestras around the US, he doesn’t recall ever having performed a Delius symphony. Bill describes Delius as having an affinity with Benjamin Britten and we will listen to “On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring”, which evokes sounds of the Yorkshire Moors.
