Default Saint Paul Sunday on NPR

This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of my favorite NPR programs: “Saint Paul Sunday” (formerly “Saint Paul Sunday Morning”). It features an hour of (usually) live performances by soloists, ensembles, even small orchestras or choruses.

Because it is live music, it is especially wonderful. And because it comes on as our Sunday morning alarm clock, we can lie in bed and listen, which is pretty luxurious.

Today’s program was unusual in that it was a retrospective (using recorded music) of the Dale Warland Singers, a group that sings music of any type, including new pieces, some of them composed for them, most of it a cappella. (You can listen to some of today’s program at the linked site.)

One morning, long ago, we awoke to Art of the Fugue played by the Juilliard String Quartet (the first time I had heard it done on strings). The show has many quartets and trios, many pianists, and a lot of singing. A couple of weeks ago, Jordi Savall was on with his Hesperion XXI group, which was fabulous.

To find out if/when you can hear it locally, or to listen to excerpts from shows, or buy a CD, visit the web site.
