Editors’ Notes The world’s greatest orchestras and choirs capture the season’s warmth and magic. While the timeless tale of a babe in a manger remains the same, it has inspired classical music’s finest composers to ever-inventive interpretations. Enjoy stately oratorios devoted to the nativity of Jesus, ballet music evoking Christmas Day enchantments, and joyful operatic celebrations bringing welcome illumination to the dark days of winter. Hallelujah!
