EPISODE #6 SOUNDS FROM THE SANCTUARY: CHRISTMAS FAVORITES 2020
Episode No. 6 Christmas favorites 2020
As we celebrate Christmas during this time of the Covid Pandemic, David Ball and Guest Daniel Ficarri guide us through some of their favorite Christmas Carols and Choral works – familiar music of the season
during these strange times. While most live Christmas music is on hold following safety guidelines, we can at least listen to cherished arrangements and performances of Carols usually sung all over the world,
including so many classics from David Willcocks, John Rutter, and even Mr. Candlelight himself, Dr. John Romeri. Also during this year that Pope Francis has declared a Year of St. Joseph, discover The Cherry
Tree Carol, one of the only carols to tell a story featuring Joseph.
