Childhood of Christ by Hector Berlioz

December 17, 2012

St. Paul, Minn. — SPCO Artistic Partner Douglas Boyd so enjoyed collaborating with Dale Warland's SPCO Chorale in 2008-09, he requested another collaboration for his final season with the SPCO. Berlioz's gentle, sublime oratorio tells the story of Christ's birth and the holy family's journey across Egypt. It is a rarely performed masterpiece, one of only a handful of Berlioz works written for chamber orchestra. Recorded during the SPCO's January 17-19, 2009 performances.
