Continuing the liturgical journey, this program notes the beginning of the season of Advent, a time of expectation. Thus we have several settings of the Magnificat, the Song of Mary, sung in her expectation of giving birth.
Also featured is the local community chorus, the Sunnyvale Singers, including an interview with their director, Hal Sundquist. The Sunnyvale Singers perform December 9, at the Sunnyvale Performing Arts Center, and December 17, at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Saratoga.
