ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Rose Ensemble is back again for 2012 with a free one-hour special for the holidays. Slavic Wonders is a stunning celebration of the season featuring some truly brilliant gems from the libraries and monasteries of Krakow, Prague and Moscow. The Rose Ensemble of Minnesota has put together a program of dazzling, passionate music for Christmastime in the great variety and range they're known for. Slavic Wonders is an engaging and curious mixture of chant, carols, and glorious polyphony. You'll hear everything from soaring sopranos lines, to the signature slavic sound of rumbling basses. Hosted by Tom Crann.
